Tory Pride and Prejudice is an authoritative but highly accessible account of the Conservative Party's attitude towards homosexual law reform and gay rights, from the 1950s to the present day.Presented in the context of contemporary social and political developments it draws upon extensive primary research and exclusive interviews to chart the party's progress from an unwillingness to decriminalise homosexuality, via Section 28 in the 1980s, to the current Liberal-Conservative government, which has produced the first comprehensive statement on equal rights in British history. At once anecdotal and thoroughly researched, this is a highly revealing book that charts not just the change in attitudes within the Conservative Party, but also within politics and in society as a whole.
