For LGBTQ+ history month here's a World In Action from 1979 showing the past was a different place. From what looks like a lovely summer day out, homosexuality has only been decriminalised for just over a decade (though not in Scotland and Northern Ireland).
Marvel at the over policing, lack of big corporate sponsors and edge of defiance. Also regional accents, which is quite rare as more media from this era doesn't travel further north than Camden.
Finally as a reminder, the age of consent mentioned wasn't lowered untill the mid 90s and wasn't equalised until the millennium.
