Peter Righton, Antony Grey and Kevin O’Dowd in conversation on therapy

The following was forwarded to me by Tom Bateman of the BBC Today Programme, for which I am immensely grateful. It consists of a discussion on therapy between Kevin O’Dowd, Peter Righton, and Antony Grey from 1972; the document comes from the archives at the London School of Economics. Grey (1927-2010) was a major LGBT activist, also deeply involved with the Homosexual Law Reform Society, later retitled the Sexual Law Reform Society (SLRS), and the associated charity The Albany Trust. However, he seems to have had plenty of connections with the Paedophile Information Exchange, and steered the SLRS in favour of some similar policies. Some more on Grey will follow in the next blog post.
