Oct 2014 - Campaign for Homosexual Equality

9 October 2014 by Pure Radio

Tuesday marked fifty years since the beginning of the modern movement for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans equality in the UK.

In October 1964, Manchester hosted the first meeting of the North West Homosexual Law Reform Committee. This was at a time when homosexuality was still illegal.

Later the organisation was renamed to the Campaign for Homosexual Equality, and it continues to fight for LGBT rights today.

A plaque was unveiled on Manchester’s Deansgate, which marks the location of the first meeting.
