Homosexuality was only made legal in England in 1967. During her time as Prime Minister legal homosexuality was still in its early days and such a thing as same sex marriage was never on the radar which wasn't legalised  until Cameron became prime minister.  Even in 2022 there are people living in this country including myself who don't believe homosexuality should be promoted in schools.

Meanwhile its been reported today that a 17-year-old player has come out, becoming the only openly gay male professional footballer in Britain.

Championship player comes out: 17-year-old is only openly gay male professional footballer in Britain (msn.com)

 

Good on him.

We need more people like him, brave enough to come out and and be a positive role model for young gay people.

Yawn.  Some previously unknown footballer is coming out as gay.  It's to be hoped he doesn't follow the same path as a  more famous footballer did called Justin Fashanu who hung himself.

You've lost the plot. It will be  thirty two years in November since Margaret Thatcher resigned as Prime Minister.  Rational people who disagreed with her politics  have moved on as in the same way rational people in the late seventies didn't decide not to buy a better German car  instead of a poorer  British Leyland car because  Adolf Hitler bombed some chip shop somewhere in Britain.

It's perfectly possible to 'move on' without thinking someone should be celebrated.

The alleged  egg throwing culprit has been identified. He's been named as Jeremy Webster who apparently is a deputy director for an art centre at Leicester University.

I agree.

Unfortunately Justin Fashanu faced a fair amount of homophobia in his short life.
