How Gay Became OK

Analysis on Radio 4 is always worth a listen. A recent edition – How Gay Became OK – looked at the significant shifts in attitudes towards homosexuality that have taken place in the last few decades.

The programme made frequent use of this iconic song, so I thought it would make a good post. Especially as Tom Robinson is a hero of mine in a 6-Music context, given his involvement in the Introducing Mixtape, and Now Playing. Plus I have a ticket to see him in concert next month.

Despite all this familiarity, the power of this version of this song was something of a revelation
