I think it's always good to know your history, be it your own family history or that of your community. And so I looked for a book that would help me in this area. What I didn't want was a book aimed at LGBT history students. I wanted something I could sit and read without being bombarded with statistics etc but this is perfect. Even just a glancing through it you learn things about our history here in the UK.

That is also what I loved. It's about LGBT life here in the UK...Not the US where most books seemed to be based!

This was the first gay-themed book I read and what a joy it is. It takes you through a comprehensive history of being gay in the UK in the 20th Century. I've never been much of a reader but this book was gripping. I found it by turns humorous and moving. When I had reached the end, I went right back to the beginning and read it again. It's a wonderful book, lovingly written and what comes through most is the humanity of the people whose stories are told. The respect with which Alkarim Jivani imbues the tales within the book makes for an uplifting and enjoyable journey. I cannot recommend this volume highly enough. It is a thoroughly good read and made me realise that I could be happy and gay. Thank you Mr Jivani.

An excellent book and a gripping but easy read.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll make another cup of tea and stay up far too long reading it and be late for work the next morning.

I've bought this book three times now so beware. If you lend it out you might never get it back again. :-)

Hidden history with a vengeance. Well-written, with many quotes from people who lived through the different periods, this book should be read by every student (or teacher) of British history.
