The Wolfenden Report
1957
This ordinary looking report
marked the changing of attitudes
towards sexuality in Britain.

At the time it was illegal
to be homosexual in Britain.
The report recommended
that the law should be changed.

In 1967 The Sexual Offences Act
was passed.
Homosexuals over 21 years old
could now have sexual relationships
without the fear of being arrested.
