Never Going Underground t-shirt
‘In 1988, Section 28 was passed, stating that local authorities ‘shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality’. In response, there was a national outcry, with protests happening up and down the country. The rally in Manchester emphasised the strength of the LGBT+ community, with Ian McKellen, Tom Robinson, and Michael Cashman in attendence. The t-shirt depicts the London Underground symbol with the words ‘Never Going Underground’, reflecting defiance against discrimination. Going back to a world where LGBT+ people were criminalised and devalued was not an option – they were staying out and moving forward. They would never stop fighting. We’ve recreated the t-shirt to celebrate our latest exhibition, marking the anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexual acts. The exhibition Never Going Underground: The Fight For LGBT+ Rights is now open, and this t-shirt is a perfect way to show your support. Happy shopping!’
