World First Exhibition telling the story of the photographers, publishers and models who supplied male "pin-up" pictures to gay men across Britain and America in the run-up to the de-criminalisation of homosexuality fifty years ago. Facing arrest, humiliation, fines and imprisonment, they challenged the laws on censorship and gay equality....and won! This unique exhibition brings together hundreds of images - shocking at the time, but now often merely quaint - and tells the stories of the men - gay and straight - who produced them. The exhibition is free and open 11-6 Mondays-Saturdays 14th July to 12 August at the Menier Gallery, 51 Southwark Street - opposite Borough Market
