Whatever Happened To Generation X?

[Tiffanie] Darke was at the centre of that culture, and remembers it primarily for its loved-up, hedonistic joyfulness and sense of inclusivity -- it appealed across all boundaries of class, race, gender, and sexuality. She was even present at the impromptu, now notorious all-weekend rave at Castlemorton, Worcestershire, which was eventually shut down by police. It was a cool, rebellious culture, and one based on a 'liberal, egalitarian mindset,' she says: 'At a rave, you would talk to anyone, everyone was equally valid -- crusties and travellers would be there, plumbers, homosexuality was celebrated, black music was celebrated. And it evolved organically and slowly,' says Darke.
