Diana Monteath-Wilson, SGLF, UK

Diana Monteath-Wilson

chair of the sussex gay liberation front

After being approached in 1970 by a small group at Sussex University who were trying to establish a Brighton GLF, Diana went to one of their initial meetings before becoming Chairperson of the group and overseeing a move from the university into the city to be more accessible.

As a gay group it was very hard to find premises for meetings or events. The local paper also refused to assist with publicity, but after two years they and council began to be accommodating of the aims even allowing the annual dance to go ahead at the Royal Pavilion!

At this time Diana was as a teacher and lived with the fear that her livelihood could be threatened.

What does your identity mean to you?

It’s me.
