A humble Ladybird book started it all off. Given to him by his mother, it sparked a fascination with its subject, Florence Nightingale. I can still see the picture of her with the lamp, and the one of the soldiers marching off to the Crimea. Ten years ago, when he first signed up with a publisher, he never suspected what a huge task his biography, Florence Nightingale: The woman and her legend, was going to be. No sooner had I signed the contract, the British Library, which has volumes of letters about Florence Nightingale's public life, immediately closed" [in preparation for its move to St Pancras].

Jeffrey Klausner, a primary care physician in Los Angeles, has treated gay men for decades. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, he said, many patients have so dramatically changed their sexual behavior that they shrug off the need for routine screenings for sexually transmitted diseases. But attitudes among these patients are shifting, Klausner has noticed, now that California and other states are loosening policies on social distancing. Concerns about sexual intimacy during an epidemic are universal and not limited to gay men, of course. Public health experts, including those long involved in HIV prevention, recognize that a proportion of all people are likely to ignore or reject categorical mandates about sexual behavior — whether they involve using condoms or limiting contact because of social distancing norms. The coronavirus is known to spread through oral and nasal secretions but not specifically through sexual intercourse.

Schools will be encouraged to hold lessons exploring the achievements of gay men and women throughout history as part of the first gay history month. The project, to be held in February, will highlight the hidden history of household names who would probably today identity as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, such as William Shakespeare, who was rumoured to be bisexual, and Florence Nightingale, who few people know was a lesbian. Other events covered during the month will include talks on the early years of gays and lesbians in British television and discussions of the history of the British LGBT Muslim movement. The voluntary initiative, modelled on the successful black history month held each October, is being backed by the government and has been given a grant by the Department for Education and Skills.
