LGBT + Q records at TNA

Postby junkers » Tue Mar 31, 2020 6:34 pm

TNA have been tweeting about their records and have a link to their guide, which is actually incorrect, I had previously asked them to amend it. The main error is the reference to the law on male homosexuality being amended in 1967 in the UK, it actually only applied to England and Wales; Scotland changed their law in the 1980s and Northern Ireland much later. In addition female homosexuality was only a bar to service in the armed forces and not in the Civil Service. In addition there are also some files amongst the Treasury records in the 'T' series at TNA, particularly around the time of the various spy cases in the 1950s and 1960s.
