Gay, Old and Out – the LGBT rights trailblazers

I never, ever saw a time that we ever not be hated and despised, because it was overwhelming. I was 16 in 1969 and I was told I was a pervert. I didn’t know the word lesbian, I didn’t know the word gay, or queer. The only words I heard were pervert. As soon as I cam out, I was confronted face to face with homophobic remarks from my colleagues – ‘you’re disgusting’, ‘what you do isn’t natural’.

Meet the people who paved the way for LGBT rights. It has been a long hard fight to secure acceptance for the LGBT community, and the older people who fought the fight often get overlooked and forgotten. This 10 minute Channel 4 documentary follows the astonishing and moving stories of the members of the Opening Doors London project – whose personal struggles and successes paved the way.
