Life as a homosexual April 11, 2017

from World at One· ·

To mark 50 years since the Sexual Offences Act in 1967 decriminalised private homosexual acts, Becky Milligan spoke to George Montague. Like many homosexual men of his generation, George got married, had children and kept his gay relationships secret. In 1974 he was convicted of gross indecency with a man - the law was repealed in 2004. The 93-year-old, who has fought for an apology for his conviction, finally received one from the Home Office.
