I’ve now written a detailed 267-page book about the people, issues and events that made the 1980s such a significant period in queer history.

It’s also called Gay in the 80s and you can download the PDF version here. Unfortunately the hard copy version is only available in UK bookstores until such times as I can find a distributor overseas. (Watch this space!)

Like the blog,the book combines my personal experiences, observations and research, and looks at the UK, USA and Australia.

A review of the book on the That’s Books blog can be found here.

The book is extensively referenced throughout. The PDF version also contains a number of hyperlinks to additional resources such as websites, blogs, film clips and music videos.
