Good As You is the tale of the cultural road to British gay equality, told by seasoned journalist and author, Paul Flynn. It tells the tale from Smalltown Boy to same sex marriage, 1984-2014, a period in which gay men turned from enemies to friends of the state, incorporating first and third hand stories from and about some of the major power players in this journey. Politicians, pop stars, footballers, soap stars and actors recount their tales as those behind the scenes get a first chance to tell their sides of the story, too. All life (and death) of the last three decades' astonishing British gay culture is here.
 
Paul Flynn is the Features Director of Man About Town and Senior Editor At Large at Love, a columnist for Grazia and Attitude. He has written for the Guardian and Observer, Sunday Times and Express.

"Insightful and engaging look at the past 30 years of gay social history in Britain" (Attitude)

"Whether it's the bittersweet recollections of a former London Lighthouse AIDS nurse, the unexpected moral fortitude of a former tabloid editor, or the Grindr confessions of a pop idol, Flynn finds the heroism in the everyday and the exceptional...an ambitious and inspiring work" (Adam Mattera, former Attitude editor)
