    Absolute Rubbish, It’s to promote his book I bet, There are about Three in every five gay men and woman in wales.

  2. I don’t know if there are any definite stats, but just about everyone I know in Wales is gay. But then again, is there a gay person who hasn’t had some crap from somebody about it? He might well have received some hate mail as a well known personality – well known if you listen to local radio, anyway – but most of it could be dismissed as sound and fury – signifying nothing. Brian might be right about him just wanting to promote a book.

    I think Brian is probably right-He had a book out at Christmas a couple of years ago-and he`s about due to bring out the sequel!!
    It could be some of the threats are not particularly because he`s ga-but because he`s so bitchy about other people-including members of his own family! I had the first book given me as a present-and I must see it was very personal and vitriolic about certain individuals! Personally-I think he is totally false.

  4. and if that’s true, then he is scummy when you consider people who HAVE been physically hurt by homophobic attacks.

  5. I had a Welsh boyfriend once, and he was gay.

    Threats of violence should be reported to the police (or LGBT reporting centre/org) not used to promote books.

    If we don’t count, we don’t count.
    Perhaps Brian can help highlight the epidemic of non-reporting.

  7. I used to love in his Mam’s shop on a saturday though.

  8. Did you all get out on the wrong side of the bed?

    It looks like grumpy disheartened cynicism against an innocent chap.
