LGBTQ in Times of War

To mark LGBTQ History Month, there is an upcoming talk about the changing experiences of the gay soldier in Britain since the Falklands War. In a 1992 survey the vast majority of serving officers found the idea of serving with gay colleagues ‘repulsive’, yet eight years later homosexuality in the armed forces was legalized. Drawing on oral history interviews, Lee Arnott (Birkbeck/Imperial War Museum) explores what it meant to be a gay soldier in a time of societal and structural change.

 

This will take place in the Cayley Room at the main University of Westminster campus, 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2HW on 25 February 2020 at 4.00pm. For further details and to sign up to attend this event please see:
