1967: Where are all the Lesbians? Voices of the invisible other.

 

The 1967 Sexual Offences Act referred to sex between men and in contrast, sex between women has never been illegal in the UK. Was life therefore easier for lesbians and bi woman in the 1960s than for gay men?

 

…Or does the lack of legislation around homosexual women suggest another level of discrimination making lesbians invisible?

Join Homotopia and a panel of leading activists at a secret location for an informal discussion as we ask ‘Where are all the lesbians?’

Jane Traies is a writer, teacher and leading researcher exploring the lives of older lesbian women in the UK.

Sandi Hughes is an award-winning filmmaker, historian and artist who has been documenting activist and LGBT+ life in Liverpool since the 1970s.

Frances Bingham is a writer of fiction, non-fiction and poetry perhaps best known for biographical work on the life of the 20th century poet Valentine Ackland.

Moderated by Joan Burnett, Trustee of Liverpool Pride.
