Roger Baker

A journal extract from the first ECC Gay Men’s Week in 1985

Ian Buckley has kindly allowed us to share the following entries from his deceased partner Roger Baker’s journal. Roger wrote this on the first ECC Gay Men’s Week at Laurieston Hall in June 1985. It gives a wonderful snapshot of what it was like for him to arrive at Laurieston for the first time, what he imagined it would be like, and the reality of the place and the people.
