Letter: Glad to be gay

I WAS appalled to find a large photograph of my family in Independent above the headline "Glad Not To Be Gay" (3 March).

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.
