Acceptable in the 80s
"Oh baby refrain from breaking my heart"
Dipping back into the GT Vault we have dusted off issue 100 featuring synthpop duo Erasure on the cover. We predicted a long and illustrious future for the duo - and 12 studio albums and an astounding run of 24 successive Top 20 hits between 1986 and 1997 later - they are still around and releasing a new album this September.

Elsewhere we looked at the then cutting-edge gay thrillers of Joseph Hansen featuring the ﬁrst homosexual sleuth taking the world of crime by storm and talked about the government’s long overdue education campaign to spread awareness of HIV and AIDS.
We also assessed the state of gay TV long before Queer As Folk minced onto our screens and discussed the conﬂicting calls from the Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom for more TV aimed speciﬁcally at gays versus The National Viewers’ and Listeners’ Association which was insisting that homosexuals be expunged from the airwaves.
