Iris in the Community

Sexual Graffiti

Section 28 1988 – 2003 prohibited the “ promotion of homosexuality” by local authorities. Many people who work for local authorities began working whilst this was law - making this film then would have been breaking the law. People who began their careers in care at this time would have not been able to support disabled people in their sexuality. Section 28 is a Law no longer in action however the ideologies may still exist.
