On the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967, we explore historical views on homosexuality and same-sex relationships. We consider how we present same-sex relationships in a historical context and ask how far does the language and rhetoric of the past influence our views on the present? Join historian Lauren Johnson @History_Lauren in this discussion with Matthew Storey @HRP_palaces, Dr Claire Hayward @HaywardCL and Bernard Donoghue @bernarddonoghue.

Recorded at Soho Radio Studios July 2017
