A Guardian Supplement today lists the 100 most influential LGBT people in 2013. No doubt they wouldn't care less but to be honest I have never heard of most of them. Some of those I had heard of, I didn't know were gay but that is as it should be. We don't go around proclaiming people's heterosexuality so why should we celebrate homosexuality? We should like and respect people for who they are without labels although it becomes difficult when it comes to what some do. I don't mean in privacy but in public. As in the Stonewall advert on the front page of the Guardian Supplement which says: "Say 'I do' to equal marriage". This is a complete distortion designed to bend public opinion by the misuse of the word equality in their determination to redefine marriage.
