Jon Savage on the social, cultural, sexual and political climate of a season of change

In July 1967, with the counter culture flourishing, attitudes loosening and A Whiter Shade of Pale and All You Need is Love topping the charts, a bill to legalise homosexuality passed through its final stages in the House of Commons after a hot all-night debate. A few days later a Legalise Pot Rally was held in Hyde Park featuring Allen Ginsberg.

Jon Savage is a writer, broadcaster and film maker. He is the author of 1966: The Year the Decade Exploded, England’s Dreaming:The Sex Pistols and Punk Rock and many other books.
