Babysitting blues


Gill: “I was less involved in other stuff. Partly because I’d got two children and one of them had disabilities and I was also firstly studying and then working. I had issues and a hostile husband who wasn’t going to approve of me going out too much. Betty’d got one (child) at that time.”
Betty: “Whereas I was only working some of the time, I didn’t have the hostile husband and I did have quite a lot of support from a gay male couple I knew from the gay centre, in particular, but as well were really were uncles to the kids for many years.”
