Letter: Coming out

Click to follow
Sir: Suzanne Moore on Mandelson ("Do yourself a favour, Peter", 30 October) is absolutely spot on. Not only her view on how Mandelson is making the issue of his sexuality a bigger deal than it has to be, but her analysis of gay rights in general.

But while it's all very well noting that Dale Winton and Lily Savage host prime-time TV shows, that's not to say all those who believe in a fair and equal society should ease up in the push for equal rights.

The state of the law and social attitudes in this country are the reason so many lesbians and gay men fear coming out in the first place.
