Turn Away, Run Away
22 years this week, an unknown band called Bronski Beat charted at #3 with their debut single Smalltown Boy, which detailed the troubles of a young man from Glasgow escaping to London for being gay. One of the first identifiably gay bands to get any chart success, Bronski Beat were pioneers in their own time.
22 years down the line, have we really moved that far from the world portrayed by BB?
