Abbey House Museum

Abbey Walk, Kirkstall, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS5 3EH


With Dr Ross Horsley (West Yorkshire Queer Stories).

Moral panics, misconceptions and public outrage have a history of dominating news coverage when it comes to LGBT+ issues. This talk looks some of the ‘dangers’ and taboos addressed by Leeds newspapers from the 1960s to the 1990s, and draws on new oral history recordings to explore how LGBT+ people might have had more to fear from the mainstream itself.

A talk to tie in with Abbey House Museum's 2019 exhibition, 'Danger Zone'.
