Available in paperback for the first time, his book demonstrates how the personal became political in post-war Britain, and argues that attention to gay activism can help us to fundamentally rethink the nature of post-war politics.
While the Left were fighting among themselves and the reformists were struggling with the limits of law reform, gay men started organising for themselves, first individually within existing organisations and later rejecting formal political structures altogether. Culture, performance and identity took over from economics and class struggle, as gay men worked to change the world through the politics of sexuality.

There is an assumption among many of today’s politicians that young people are apathetic and disengaged. This book argues that these politicians are looking in the wrong place.

W hen Fran’s boyfriend, Michael, decides he wants a three-month “break” from their relationship, her mad group of friends and mutinous cat Duke Ellington come to the rescue. Rather than allowing her to wallow in self-pity, they bully her into joining a dating website. Thus begins Lucy Robinson’s The Greatest Love Story of All Time — a witty, sometimes appalling, but always resonant portrayal of the world of internet dating and the strange things that women get up to when they think no one is looking.
