Chapter 6 examines the homosexual law reform process from 1960 to 1967 and the corresponding shift in public attitudes towards gay men. The chapter looks at the role of (mainly women) journalists in encouraging a more sympathetic attitude, and at the eventual gap between public opinion and politicians over the issue of law reform. It further traces the normalisation of gay men in the media and on radio and television.
