Celebrating the most dynamic and wonderful man, a man who the world still needs today. He was the world’s first honestly gay politician. And he was murdered by a colleague who would be deemed psychotic by today’s standards. There are too many hate-filled religious lunatics preaching fear and intolerance. The fight for equality means that gay people are still enduring their own civil rights movement. In 2013. We may think we are living in the future, with its information superhighway and particle accelerators, but a lot of people are condemned to live in the past. By people who should know better. To those bigots I say ‘Stop obsessing about what other people do in bed and get a life of your own.’
Would that we can all live to see a day when whether we’re gay, straight or any other sexual variation is of no interest to anybody but ourselves and our own partners.
