ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Homosexuality and the British opinion on it. The number of homosexual offenses known to police in England and Wales had risen from 1,280 in 1938 to 5,443 in 1952, an increase of nearly 400 percent. The author says that a situation has come in which no man with regard for his reputation would dare enter a public urinal after dark. From the cocoons of secrecy and silence with which it had been wrapped for centuries the subject of homosexuality was brought into the open for serious consideration.
