Letter: A private affair

THERE is something tyrannical about the tone of John Lyttle's article on George Michael ("Why it's been a bad week for homosexuals", 9 April) and its underlying assumption that he should have come out ages ago and in effect has a duty to the gay community to do so.

George Michael's sexuality is his own private affair and the business only of himself and those he chooses to sleep with (his alleged breaking of the law is another matter). Didn't the gay movement set out precisely to liberate people from prejudice and oppressive, moralising intrusion?
