New landmark book: how Labour delivered equality

As Labour puts the final piece of the legal jigsaw in place to ensure full legal rights for lesbian, gay and bisexual people, LCLGR publishes the history of how the Labour Party and the trade union movement came to have such a strong commitment to equality.

From Edward Carpenter, the openly-gay socialist who inspired the founding of the Labour Party, through the battles at conferences and behind the scenes, to the steps by which the Blair government delivered full legal equality, this is unmissable.
