Online talk 'Kath Duncan - the importance of working class LGBTQ woman in history'
Wednesday, February 10th, 2021
The Working Class Movement Library marks LGBT+ History Month with an online talk by Ray Woolford, 'The importance of working class LGBTQ woman in history, and why we need to reclaim this LGBT History Month our icons and our heroes'. The talk will be live-streamed - sign-up details available on the day at www.wcml.org.uk/events .
Ray writes: "Kath Duncan was the most important UK civil rights leader of the past 100 years & yet until my 5 years' research into writing my biography of her, The Last Queen of Scotland, almost nothing was known. As a gay man, it was all the more shocking to me not to find any LGBT icons in history who led real struggle which often cost them their lives.
Many ask why is so little known about Kath Duncan? The answer is that a humble primary school teacher born into poverty, who became a communist, and who happened to be LGBTQ when it was a crime, was something still not cool.
Our Web site about our work carrying forward Kath's legacy, and to order both my biography & my stage play Liberty, is at www.Kathduncan-Equality-Civilrights-Network.co.uk".
