The history of Britain’s gay rights journey from 1950 to today (video)

A great video from Britain’s Channel 4 looking at the cultural shift in Britain from the mid-1950s to today in terms of attitudes towards gays and lesbians.

As you may have read, the British House of Commons passed legislation legalizing gay marriage today (it’s the “second reading,” which means while there’s a ways to go, the outcome is now almost certainly in favor of legalizing gay marriage).
