‘A Little Gay History is a feat of rediscovery. Daryl Leeworthy has mined an astonishing diversity of sources to bring into the light the underground stories and political struggles of gay men and women in a changing Wales.’
- Dr Peter Wakelin, writer and curator
‘Daryl Leeworthy has undertaken an important task of historical recovery. His book, which is at once deeply personal and profoundly universal, restores a hitherto lost dimension to the Welsh historical narrative. It is essential reading for all who wish to understand modern Wales in its fullest sense.’
- Dr Martin Wright, Senior Lecturer in History, Cardiff University
‘Despite its title, this is a big book – big on ideas, analysis, and empathy, and big on tracing the lived experience of gay people in Wales. An excellent read, it is a major achievement that deserves to be widely circulated and absorbed.’
- Emeritus Professor Jeffrey Weeks, London South Bank University, author of What is Sexual History?
'This book is a small but important attempt to increase the visibility of Welsh gays and lesbians and to begin to tell a distinctive national story'.
- New Welsh Review
