Over the Rainbow: Money, Class & Homophobia by Nicola Field
First published in 1995, Nicola Field's Over the Rainbow confronts the political contradictions in the LGBT+ movement and contains one of the earliest first-hand accounts from the frontlines of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM), featured in the hit film Pride.
Written at a time when LGBT+ people enjoyed increased visibility but faced continued discrimination and assault from conservative governments, Over the Rainbow sets an agenda for resistance rooted in class politics and shatters the myth of a unified LGBT+ 'community'. Including fresh material, this expanded edition considers the impact of Pride and the challenges ahead for LGBT+ activism in the 21st century.
