  1. That simple senetence about equality and dignity is more intelligent than most of the political bodies of most countries combined can manage.

    Shame cant attend the performance.

    George Closet sorry Clooney would do the LGBT community a far better service by actually coming out rather than parading endless new girlfriends on to the red carpet whenever he’s asked about his private life. The guy has more beards than a fancy dress shop.

    1. Real closet cases seldom take a public stance favouring gay rights, they’re usually too concerned about drawing attention to themselves.

      1. Or losing their careers, especially those in Hollywood.

    2. Why don’t we let him be and do what he wants at his own pace.
      Right now he is doing us all a big honor and favor.
      That should count for something.

    3. Where is your proof that he’s gay? Quite frankly, who really cares? I’d rather have a straight person supporting my equality than someone who doesn’t. Sexual orientation shouldn’t matter. Without straight support, we’ll never get full equality.

  3. Good man, Clooney.

  4. What about British gays who are also treated as second class citizens and are barred from marrying?

    It’s truly amazing that we in the UK have no major celebrities supporting us let alone speaking out on marriage equality? I just don’t get it. American celebrities obviously are more politically active than our own or just not interested. I would have thought someone like Emma Thompson, Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz and Jude Law would take a stand and make some noise as well as sports stars such as David Beckham who’s wife Victoria is very pro equality.

    I neither know nor care whether George Clooney is gay, bi, or whatever. I look at the facts which are, whether one likes him or not as an actor, he carries a lot of weight in ‘Hollywood’ and for someone of his influence to place himself squarely in the pro-equality camp, should be embraced and welcomed by us.
