LGBT history

The member of Parliament for the Scarborough and Whitby from 1931-1941 was Paul Latham. Latham was a Conservative Party member who was arrested in 1941 for homosexual activity. He was court-martialled and found guilty of ten charges of indecent conduct and of attempted suicide and was discharged dishonourably and imprisoned for two years without hard labour [1].

Out Aloud was taking part in the Street Choirs festival in Whitby in July 2015.[2]
