  1. Noble sentiments … but the landscape was VERY different ‘earlier’. He may never have worked again if he’d come out in the 1960′s. He’d possibly have gone to prison!

  2. Derek Jarman came out way before, and expressed his scorn for the comfortable option McKellen and others like him took. Happy to take tea at No 10 and a knighthood after all the hard work had been done by others.
