A man's own story from the Rhondda.

effrey Weeks was born in the Rhondda in 1945, of mining stock. As he grew-up he increasingly felt an outsider in the intensely community minded valleys, a feeling intensified as he became aware of his gayness. Escape came through education.

He left for London, to university, and to realise his sexuality. From the early 1970s he was actively involved in the new gay liberation movement and became its pioneering historian. This was the beginning of a long career as a researcher and writer on sexuality, with widespread national and international recognition. He has been described as the 'most significant British intellectual working on sexuality to emerge from the radical sexual movements of the 1970s'.

His seminal book, Coming Out, a history of LGBT movements and identities since the 19th century, has been in print for forty years. He was awarded the OBE in the Queen's Jubilee Honours in 2012 for his contribution to the social sciences.

"A revelation, Jeffrey Weeks delivers a compelling portrait of the two communities which shaped him working-class Rhondda and queer London and of his personal journey out of the closet and into a life of liberation. Humorous, passionate, insightful and written with literary flair, Daryl Leeworthy, author of A Little Gay History of Wales."
Daryl Leeworthy, author of A Little Gay History of Wales

"Beautifully written, wise and insightful, the book traces a life lived through a seismic period in gay history..."
