Wolfenden’s Witnesses: Making sense of homosexuality in postwar Britain

Thursday, 16 June 2016 at 3:30pm - AEB11 - Archway East B11
The Wolfenden Report of 1957 has long been recognised as a landmark in moves towards gay law reform in Britain and parts of the British World. What is less well known is that the testimonials and written statements of the witnesses who came before the committee provide by far the most complete and extensive array of perspectives we have on how homosexuality was understood in Britain in the middle decades of the twentieth century. This paper will discuss why the Wolfenden Committee was set up, the witness statements, the report itself and the outcome.
