Special Interview: Jeffrey Weeks

coming-out-pic-2Clayton Littlewood meets gay activist, historian and author Jeffrey Weeks to talk about the new edition of his book Coming Out. It was originally published in 1977 and traces LGBT life in Britain from the late 1800s to the present day.

After the publication of the first edition, which was barely ten years after male homosexuality had been partially decriminalised in England and Wales, Jeffrey was unemployable for a long time as a professional historian. By 2012 his career had gone full circle and he was awarded the OBE for services to social science.

This is the extended version of the interview that was broadcast on Out in South London on 25 October 2016.
