This could not be further from the case. Last years my queer music programme won gold at the Sony Radio Awards, I performed at London Gay Pride - and indeed only recently returned from marching at Sydney's Gay Mardi Gras carnival parade last weekend.
At next week's Gay & Lesbian American Music Awards in New York, my latest album Having It Both Ways is nominated in four different categories. For the record, I have never, ever, claimed "not to be gay" and my 20-year commitment to lesbian/gay/bisexual politics remains undiminished.
