Trans - The History of the LGBTQ and Civil Rights movement bought to London Stage with #Liberty

One of the first #LGBTQ direct action activists was Percy Duke whose love for a fine pair of heels and the latest frock despite the law, was hugely influenced by his house mate , Kath Duncan who encouraged people not just to live their lives as they chose and NOT hide behind closed door, but challenge every police man and every Judge that would arrest and charge #LGBTQ just for looking as they did in 1930s Britain .
Percy Duke arrested and charged whilst living at Kath Duncans house in New Cross Deptford turned his arrest into a political statement despite the huge personal cost to himself, by speaking out against the injustice and FOR all #LGBTQ civil rights, he was give not a few days jail, but 12 months jail with hard labour. Percy Dukes story is one of the amazing Civil Rights activism stories bought to life on the London stage with the first ever staging of the true events of these brave people lead by Kath Duncan who fought, campaigned and established the #LGBTQ and #CivilRights movement in 1930s Britain , it seems shocking that in Britain 2019 so few people are aware of how the UK LGBTQ and Civil rights movement was established and the names of its leaders who paid a terrible personal cost to fight OUR battle, whilst Kath Duncans 2 Jail terms lead to establishment and first court case of National Council Civil Liberties .
