    Description

    Gay Life and Liberation - A Photographic Record of 1970s Belfast Ulster Museum Exhibition

    In response to changing attitudes to homosexuality elsewhere in the western world, a group emerged in Belfast during the early 1970s with the expressed aim of campaigning for the legal rights of thousands of gay men and women in the province. The photographs in this exhibition are a testimony to the resilience of the LGBT community and to the strong level of mutual support at this time.
