The passing of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act, the 2004 Civil Partnership Act, and the repealing of Section 28 of the Local Government Act in 1988 were more than just parliamentary business dates for many of us - they were historical milestones which represented the beginning of the end of laws which governed how LGBT people have been able to conduct their personal lives. 

Redbridge Rainbow Community, Eastside Community Heritage and RAMFEL have collaborated local members of the LGBT community to record stories and share perspectives on how the lives of LGBTI+ people have been shaped under changing legislation in the United Kingdom.
