Liberty is a play and book that tells, for the first time, the true story of just one chapter in the life of Kath Duncan, as a trailer for Ray’s biography of her, The Last Queen of Scotland. It tells of the establishment of the Civil Rights movement in 1930s Britain and has won extensive acclaim and is set to be staged globally as part of LGBT history month in 2019 ;a hugely high-profile event. None of Ray’s works has received anything other than rave reviews.
The Last Queen Of Scotland is Ray’s latest work, having been four years in research, and recounting the biography of the most important Scot and UK Civil Rights activist of the past 100 years, Kath Duncan. This book is already generating huge media interest.
Queer is Ray’s latest book, in the early stage of writing, telling the true story of his own survival through 70s and 80s Britain as a young gay man at a time it was illegal, with Roller-disco, drag, queer activism, clones and Thatcher’s Britain, all against the back drop of Aids that decimated the gay community.
