Norwich Pride: Gay cartoonist David Shenton on the decades after Stonewall

A cartoonist has captured life in Britain's LGBTQ+ community in every decade since the Stonewall riots.

David Shenton, 70, has been drawing since the 1970s and was a regular contributor to the Gay News and Boyz magazine, where humour was a key tool in the campaigning gay press.

Reflecting on the past 50 years on the weekend of Norwich Pride, Mr Shenton said: "I'm so proud that people are now happy and comfortable carrying LGBTQ banners and having a lovely, lovely time."
