John Clarkson

In 1980, John was prosecuted for "insulting behaviour, whereby a breach of the peace was likely to be occasioned" - the peace was potentially breached in a public lavatory on the Embankment. He was acquitted after a successful defence by Adrian Fulford, who is now a judge and perhaps the only "out" judge in the country.

In the late 1970s John was a significant figure in Nottingham CHE and in the 1980s was the Coordinator of Nottingham Switchboard for several years. When Switchboard had a minor financial crisis in 1984, John raised money by a sponsored slim. John died in 1996.
