Description:
Michael Cashman has lived many lives, all of them remarkable: as a beloved actor of stage and screen; as a campaigner for gay rights; as an MEP and as a life peer. Born in the post-war East End of London, young Michael's life is changed when he is spotted in a school play, cast in Lionel Bart's 'Oliver!' and is transported to the glittering West End. Acting on stage and screen into adulthood, he finds his most defining role as Colin in Eastenders, making television history as one half of the first gay kiss ever broadcast on a British soap. But it is a chance encounter in a Butlins resort that leads Michael to the great love of his life: Paul Cottingham, who would become his husband and partner of 31 years. We follow Michael's second act, as with Ian McKellen he founds and chairs Stonewall, fighting tirelessly for civil liberties all over the world before entering the world of politics.

This is a fantastic read about the rollercoaster life of Michael Cashman. It is also something much deeper too - it is about him and his partner being in the Vanguard of fighting for and protecting the rights of gay people. I recommend it!
