It’s thirty years since Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government introduced the Local Government Act 1988, which became notorious for its inclusion of Section 28. The clause prohibited local authorities from “intentionally promoting homosexuality or publishing material with the intention of promoting homosexuality”, as well as from “promoting the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”. The clause was repealed in Scotland on 21st June 2001 and in the rest of the UK on 18th November 2003.
The 30-year anniversary is being marked by events and talks, including a lecture given by Lisa Power (Founder member of Stonewall and co-founder of The Pink Paper) on 2nd July in London.
