Sir: David Aaronovitch (Comment, 10 November) was right to draw a link between the "Nick Brown affair" and the suicide of a 15-year-old boy following anti-gay bullying. But the Government should be taking some of the flak which is being directed at The Sun. The Government is in a position to take a lead on this issue, but by its recent announcements that gay couples are not suitable to be adoptive parents and that the repeal of Section 28 is to be delayed, it has instead made clear its view that lesbian and gay relationships are not equal in value to heterosexual ones and has thereby contributed to a climate in which bigoted attitudes can continue to flourish and in which tragedies will continue to occur.
