Ian McKellen on same-sex marriage
In an opinion piece for the Independent, IanMcKellen, Polari‘s LGBT Hero for Day 14, issues a challenge to Lord Carey and those who oppose same-sex marriage.
As one of the co-founders of Stonewall I am familiar with such hints of homophobia. Stonewall has indeed pressured successive governments but Lord Carey has misunderstood our argument for equality, when he defines it as “being equal means being the same”. On his more generous days, I’m sure Lord Carey would accept that all human beings are the same in being God’s children.
