What Section 28 Did To Me

2018 marks thirty years since Section 28 was passed to prohibit the ‘promotion’ of homosexuality in schools and other state funded organisations in UK. The programme 'What Section 28 Did To Me', organised by staff in HAHP and students from the MA Module Art History’s Queer Stories, look at the legacies of Section 28, the role of activism and our understanding of this piece of legislation 30 years on.
