by Edited by Ben Summerskill - £18.99  Continuum Publishing (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780826487858 | ISBN 10: 0826487858

The arrival of civil partnership in Britain in 2005 was welcomed with a Sun editorial celebrating the forthcoming wedding of Elton John and David Furnish. Beneath the headline 'Gay Pride' the newspaper - once doggedly hostile to homosexuality - claimed the event would 'lend a touch of stardust' to modern Britain.
The Way We Are Now is a compelling account of the way the world has been transformed for millions of gay people within a generation. Lesbians and gay men discuss their lives and work with remarkable candour.
Contributors include actor Antony Sher, artist Maggi Hambling, novelists Alan Hollinghurst, Stella Duffy and V.G. Lee, historian David Starkey, columnist and former politician Matthew Parris, pianist Stephen Hough, activist Irshad Manji, journalist Jane Czyzselka and Brian Paddick, Britain's most senior gay police officer.
