After Stonewall and the removal of Section 28, has coming of age really got easier for gay teenagers? Foyles hosts the launch of an anthology, Love Me as I Am, by Ade Adeniji & Darren Brady (founders of The Quest for Gay Men) and Francois Lubbe. Their collection brings together a variety of reflections by gay men on the adolescent experiences that shaped their lives. Join us for readings by contributors, a discussion on the anthology's context and a chance to put forward your own questions and contributions.
