British Council Promotes Waugh in Diversity Week

The British Council in India is celebrating diversity week and is promoting the works of British writers from the LGBT community who it deems to represent diverse views. Evelyn Waugh is the first writer mentioned:

Waugh explored his homosexuality both at school, and later while studying at Oxford University. There, he was part of an avant-garde circle of friends, the Hypocrites, where he met his partner, Richard Pares and later, Alastair Graham. Waugh is known for drawing much inspiration for his work from his own life, and he certainly paved the way for later LGBT writers.

They recommend Decline and Fall and post a link to the audiobook of The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold. Other writers recommended include Virginia Woolf, D H Lawrence, and Alan Hollinghurst.
