Book Launch of the new edition of Over the Rainbow: Money Class and 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 of the inspiring story of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, featured in the hit film Pride. Written at a time when LGBT+ people enjoyed expanding visibility and openness but faced continued discrimination and assault from conservative governments, Over the Rainbow sets out an agenda for resistance firmly rooted in the politics of class and shatters the myth of a unified LGBT+ ‘community’. This new edition includes fresh material, reflecting on the impact of Pride and focusing on the challenges ahead in the struggle for LGBT+ liberation in the 21st century.

Nicola Field, an original member of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, is a London-based writer, artist and activist. She has written for Diva, Socialist Review and Ambit, exhibited at the V&A and the British Film Institute, and spoken on political platforms across the UK and internationally.
