It’s also worth reminding people that the past is a different county.

Gay sex was only decriminalised in Scotland in 1980 and Northern Ireland in 1982. Tabloids were outing people and it was usually enough to end careers including MPs.

It wasn’t until 2000 that a gay person was legally allowed to serve in the armed forces and 2001 that the age of consent was equalised.

It’s hard to describe what it was like to modern audiences as the area is now tourist friendly and the air of menace had gone.

But I do remember all the stuff in the gutter Sundays, about Elms Guest House, and celebrities, who were Gay, having crap written about them, I remember Gay Is The Word Bookshop being raided, I remember the Bell Public House being raided by the police in 1993. Even today some people have the idea that Gay men are paedophiles, and paedophile recruiters,
