G Scene - "Stunning"

The Evening Argus - "Homosexual"

James Ledward in Gscene April 2001 -


"By tape recording and transcribing interviews the Queer About Campus team created a visual history of Gay Brighton over the last forty years. The early days of gay liberation and the women's liberation struggle. The dawning of AIDS with the shock reporting that went with it and most moving of all the "Many men so beautiful all dead" section which created a pictorial history of Sussex University graduates lost to AIDS."

"The exhibition was created from scratch and the quality of concept and workmanship was quite stunning."

"It deserves as wide an audience as possible."
