Description:
September, 1988. David has a poorly kept secret. His father's guessed it. His classmates shout it down the corridors. And just when he feels that he can begin to confide in his English teacher, the Local Governments Act, recently passed into law, pushes a wedge between the two of them. And so David makes a bold push back. Nobody was ever convicted under Section 28 – but the law’s legacy is one of freely reigning homophobia in schools. On the road to healing Britain's homophobia, it was our biggest backwards step yet.
