Jenny lives with Eric and Martin: a special episode on schools and Section 28
For today’s episode we go back to the UK in the 1980’s, where politicians brandished a children’s book as proof that school pupils were being indoctrinated into homosexuality and induced a moral outrage. Jenny Lives with Eric and Martin was a small photo book for children which the Education Secretary branded as: “Blatant homosexual propaganda” At Queer Ephemera we are proud makers and distributors of homosexual propaganda so naturally we wanted to find out more. This is the story of Jenny, Eric, and Martin; of the picture book that threatened the right wing and which sparked Section 28, the law that banned the promotion of homosexuality until this century. Transcripts, shownotes, and credits are up on the Queer Ephemera website. Find us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. The show is also available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Podbean, or directly on our website.
