Simon Callow, the actor and veteran gay rights campaigner, has condemned the “strange turn to the tyrannical” taken by Stonewall on self-identification for transgender people.

Callow, who was involved in the anti-government protests that led to the foundation of Stonewall in 1989, said an “extraordinarily unproductive militancy” now surrounded its position. This uncompromising mood risked infringing women’s rights and could put pressure on young gay people to transition, he said, and it was a sign of the times that he felt nervous about the reaction he would stir up, simply for expressing his views.

He should expect a firestorm of “incoming ordnance” from the militants.

“Everything can be discussed” he says.

Unfortunately, the “Black Pampers” of the previous post are not interested in discussion.

Callow is best known for his roles in Amadeus, Four Weddings and a Funeral and Shakespeare in Love.
