If 2013 was the year of coming out, let’s make 2014 the year we just are. When being gay stops being front-page and starts being “so-what?”.
I read these sentences in the Sunday Times editorial by Katie Glass on the 2nd of February
and found myself agreeing with her. She talks of the ‘celebrigay’ smashing the ‘glass closets’ as feeling very old-fashioned.
Some more quotes:
…the most powerful thing we can offer young people isn’t gay role models but role models who are gay.
…I want who I’m sleeping with to be the least interesting thing about me there is.
p.s. Although there is perhaps some case to be made for ‘celebrigays’ making it easier for people in still-homophobic societies/occupations.
