Gay rights: Life under Section 28 – BBC Newsnight

From May 2018:

30 years ago Section 28 was introduced. It was – the now repealed – clause of a local government act, to stop a council promoting the teaching of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship. That’s a quote. The prominent gay writer and journalist Matthew Todd – he was editor at Attitude magazine for many years – was in school in those days, and looks back now, at the effect it had. Newsnight is the BBC’s flagship news and current affairs TV programme – with analysis, debate, exclusives, and robust interviews.
