National Association of Youth Clubs


“There was a National Association of Youth Clubs Girls’ Work Officer called Val, based in Leicester and there was this whole network of Girls’ Workers, a huge proportion of which were lesbians. I got to know Val through this, then got involved with her. She managed to get funding for a magazine called ‘Working with Girls’, and I got the job of editor. It was hilarious, this was in the days of ‘Letraset’, you literally type set it letter by letter, not like now, I had no idea how to do layout, cut the bits out, and paste them literally, with tweezers and scissors and glue. I remember sitting under the table crying my eyes out, I didn’t know what to do, but we figured it out. When I got the job I ended the relationship with Val".
