David Shenton: Documenting Gay History
Me and Kate Charlesworth, who is a friend of mine and the lesbian equivalent of me, filled the gay press with cartoons, and between us we actually wrote down, documented gay history – without even meaning to …”
David Shenton’s work is many things: funny, illuminating, touching, surprising and always perceptive. In this gallery we celebrate 35 years of his cartoon strips that tell a snap-shot story of gay life in the ’80s, ’90s, and ’00s.
You can discover more about David and his wonderfully charming work in our interview with him which we filmed last summer by clicking here. We also publish a weekly cartoon by David every Wednesday and you can follow him on Facebook on his page: These Foolish Things.
