Past2Present 2014 online version

The PDF file for the  2014 edition of Past2Present is rather large (9Mb+; http://lgbthistoryproject.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/past2present-2014.html), so we decided to try an alternative, web-based version for those for whom that might be a problem.

As we are an unfunded group that really means adapting the magazine to the blog format. So here goes....
