Amiable Warriors: A History of the Campaign for Homosexual Equality

The Campaign for Homosexual Equality (CHE) is the oldest surviving LGBT organisation in the UK. With more than 150 local branches and over 6,000 members, it has grown from a small regional committee lobbying for law reform with local MPs, into Britain’s largest democratic gay organisation.

Playwright and journalist Peter Scott-Presland examines CHE’s roots in Manchester, the traditions it grew out of, and the secret of its survival and ultimate success.
