Minorities Research Group

The Minorities Research Group (MRG) (est. 1963)[1] was the first organisation to openly advocate the interests of lesbians in the United Kingdom. After the legalisation of male homosexuality in the UK with the implementation of the Sexual Offences Act 1967 other more political organisations had appeared, such as the Campaign for Homosexual Equality which focuses on equal rights for all homosexuals. These superseded the objectives of Minorities Research Group and helped bring about its demise and evolution.
