We are delighted to welcome Matthew Todd, author of the Elton John- acclaimed memoir/ polemic "Straight Jacket" to talk about his latest publication, "Pride".

It spans seminal moments and key figures, events and breakthroughs of the movement with reproduction of rare images and documents

Todd has also drawn together the individual stories and moving personal testimonies from key figures such as David Furnish, Maureen Duffy, Paris Lees, Bisi Alimi, Will Young and Reverend Troy Perry.
