“If you trace the bottle of amyl through late 20th-century history, you trace the legacies of gay culture on popular culture in the 20th century. We wouldn’t have had rave, disco or club culture as we know it today without the gay community.” – Dr Lucy Robinson, Professor in Collaborative History, Sussex University.
