Like many gay men born after the 1967 Act (a month after, in my case), I somehow felt that the law was something from another era. Ignorance and malice come as no surprise to gay men, but Monday night's vote is a distressing reminder of the hatred still expressed by those charged with formulating law for the benefit of all.
Those of us at Parliament overwhelmed an unprepared handful of police with the intensity of our anger. Such passion will ensure that this issue will not disappear.
