Biography 


Alan Keslian was a Gay Liberation Front activist in London in the 1970s, among other things setting up West London GLF and organising gay dances attended by hundreds in Fulham Town Hall.
He has experienced and benefited from the huge change in attitudes towards Gay men and Lesbians in England and elsewhere during recent decades. During his teenage years, in the UK any sex between men was a crime, whereas now civil partnership offers a legal status on a par with marriage, and discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation is increasingly outlawed. This transformation has huge implications for gay relationships, and his motive in wrhttp://www.tumblr.com/dashboard/search/keslianiting is to explore the impact of this new freedom and portray its effects. His first novel, Goodmans Hotel, was published in 2003. His second, a more humorous book, Closer Than Breathing - A Light Gay Odyssey - came out in 2009. He believes his readers’ time is valuable, and tries hard not to waste it.
He lives with his partner in West London, and is a member of GALHA, the UK based Gay and Lesbian Humanist Association.
