About the Event

Free entry. In Conversation, Mike Fry discusses his newly published ‘memoirs and musings’ which tell of a child with ‘twin sins’: gay and born out-of-wedlock and the many silences that ensued.

Mike Fry, now in his early 80s, recently caught sight of two young men walking along nonchalantly holding hands. In brotherhood, he introduced himself and during their chat asked if they’d received any adverse comments. They hadn’t!

Whilst we know that in 2020 there is more acceptance, in post-war Britain, attitudes to homosexuality were by and large

hostile and entrenched, potentially leading to harassment, blackmail and even imprisonment.

Mike’s newly published ‘memoirs and musings’ tell of a child, gay and born out-of-wedlock who grew up with ‘twin sins’ and the

many silences that ensued.
