Delete criminal records relating to repealed laws eg gross indecency

Comment 27th July 2010

Convictions criminalising gay men issued before legal changes and esp. before 1967 in effect just for being Gay  should be deleted from criminal records.

Why does this matter?

These convictions have reverberated down the years and still decades later can cause consequences both on an individual basis and on Social Integration ,perhaps even more so now with Advanced Criminal Checks. If the Govt wants a Big Society and Volunteers the continuation of this injustice cannot continue. I could personally point to enough damage to myself and to others through the social negativity which has been fostered by the continued effects of discarded Social mores.
