About Nicola Field
Nicola Field is a socialist and LGBT+ activist based in Peckham, south London. She was an original member of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM), whose story was told in the hit film Pride. Her book, Over the Rainbow: Money Class and Homophobia was first published in 1995. It contains the earliest published first-hand account of LGSM and confronts the political contradictions in the LGBT+ movement. The book was republished last year with new material reflecting on the impact of the film Pride and the issues facing the LGBT movement today. For Ruskin, Nicola will reflect on the changes that have taken place in her own lifetime as an activist, and discuss the challenges in the fight for LGBT+ Liberation in the 21stCentury.
The book will be on sale at the end and Nicola will be happy to sign copies.
