The gay rights group Outrage! is to challenge 20 allegedly homophobic MPs to watch gay sex videos to check whether they have latent homosexual feelings.
Peter Tatchell, the group's spokesman, said research by Professor Henry Adams of the University of Georgia showed that 80 per cent of men who said they were exclusively heterosexual were sexually aroused by homoerotic imagery. Outrage! has written to the MPs, who voted against liberalising homosexuality laws in 1994, inviting them to undergo Professor Adams' test. The campaigners claim the professor's findings support theories that homophobia is often indicative of repressed homosexual feelings. Louise JuryReuse content
