Peter Tatchell is one of the leading gay-rights activists. He was involved in the Gay Liberation Front in the early 1970s and was involved in organising London’s first Gay Pride march in 1972. In the 1990s he was involved with the direct action pressure group Outrage! More recently, his campaigns have been organised through the Peter Tatchell Foundation; they have focused not just on LGBT rights in the UK, but have had an increasingly global focus.
In this interview, Peter reflects on the changes in legal approaches to homosexuality and the social and cultural changes which have taken place alongside these legal reforms.
