Unitarian Youth Focus on Homosexuality
The Unitarian Young People’s League held an autumn convention at The Nightingale Centre, Great Hucklow, focussing on homosexuality. They invited two guest speakers, Anthony Grey (Trustee of the Albany Trust and Chairman of the National Federation of Homophile Organisations) (pictured above) and Stephen Etherington (Campaign for Homosexual Equality and the Gay Liberation Front).
One attendee remembered that “even those…who were strongly prejudiced found they were looking at the subject in a somewhat different way” and that by the end “they all came to the same conclusion. That homosexuals were unfairly prejudiced against, and the main reason…is that the general public have not been informed enough.” The Young People’s League agreed to raise the subject at the next General Assembly.
