Gabriel Clark: I came out to my mum by showing her a picture of the guy I was dating
just after Section 28 (which made it illegal to ‘promote’ homosexuality in schools). I sat in classrooms while people debated gay marriage. I even remember in primary school being told not to use the word gay. It’s no wonder I felt guilty, my identity and rights were being debated and I was too scared to speak up in case someone figured it out. Just today I read about a man beaten for his sexuality, and last week saw some friends were harassed on a night out.
