Sodom, Gomorrah and the New Jerusalem: Labour & Lesbian & Gay Rights from Edward Carpenter to Today

by Peter Purton
£5.99   paperback  Labour Campaign for Lesbian & Gay Rights (2006)

Sodom, Gomorrah and the New Jerusalem: Labour & Lesbian & Gay Rights from Edward Carpenter to Today by Peter Purton Since 1997, the rights of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals in this country have been transformed. These changes could not have come about without a Labour government. But they did not happen by accident - they were the result of campaigning over many years by activists in the Labour Party and the trade union movement.
 
This publication looks not only at what has happened during the hundred years since the Parliamentary Labour Party was formed but, just as importantly, why these things happened. It takes as its starting point the work of Edward Carpenter, the gay man whose work as a pioneer of equality was so remarkable, and ends by looking at what remains to be done now that equality - in legal terms at least - is a genuine reality.
