Thatcher's Homophobia Revisited

Before launching the notorious Section 28, the first anti-gay legislation in 100 years, Mrs. Thatcher spoke to the Tory party Conference in 1987.
She told Conference that children in out schools were being “taught they have an inalienable right to be gay”, that they should be taught “sound, traditional, moral values” and were being “cheated”.
Section 28 had the effect of making lesbians, gays and bisexual people unspeakable in the classroom. It caused incalculable damage to our LGB children. It was not repealed until 2003. It still forms the basis of anti-LGB and T legislation that is being introduced in many countries – including Russia – today.
