An interview with Paul Baker, author of Fantabulosa: A Dictionary of Polari and Gay Slang.
Polari is a voice from another era, and is remembered best through the Round the Horne characters Julian and Sandy. Who better to explain the phenomenon than Paul Baker?
It’s important to remember the role Polari played in the lives of gay men and lesbians. It’s a testament to their creativity, humour and tenacity.Permalink
