But those who claim that the gay-rights movement has lost its way as these voices have been subsumed by dreary small-“c” conservatives have overlooked what constitutes the real gains.
The markers of success for emancipation of all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people cannot be only in its achieved (initial) aims but also in whom it brings to the party.
Warm, loving and generous in his relationships, Stephen Fry inspires tremendous devotion and loyalty in his loved ones.
This is good, since he would never settle for anything less!
The Gay Liberation Front, the first major charge for gay rights in the 1970s, was absolutely populated by counter-culture, free-loving revolutionists whose manifesto rallied for a “new order” as “we are already more advanced than straight people” and because “the end of the sexist culture and of the family will benefit all women and gay people”. These people, courageous and ambitious, should be cherished by history.
Their lofty goals for alternative family structures remain valid, and in some parts, already realised.
They love him and laugh because they know the truth: that behind their doilies and antimacassars lie spankings and stockings, naughty seaside postcards and mutual schoolgirl crushes. The “kiss-ins” in the early 1990s, where activists publicly snogged to protest against police brutality, worked, as did many other actions by the explosive Out Rage! But anyone who has accompanied Peter Tatchell (its unofficial leader) to meetings with the powerful will know that clever radicals recognise the potency of besuited whisperings in gilded rooms.
Their gripe was this: that the gay-rights movement has failed because its once-revolutionary goals have been abandoned for an apologetic conformism in which we plead to xerox the life of the suburban heterosexual.“We fought for liberation, to overthrow antiquated, oppressive institutions like marriage; now we beg to join them,” they cried.
Yet this is a man whom Middle England can claim as its captain unaware that he subverts its prudish veneer.
I can’t help thinking that they do not recognise the Trojan Horse who delights and amuses while encouraging them to “taste every fruit of every tree in the garden at least once”. Fry’s model of encroaching behind enemy lines has always worked wonders for gay liberation, alongside the mass protests and abseiling lesbians.
Fry and Spencer, a writer, reportedly began dating last year.
The two have remained private about their May-December romance, though Spencer did post this group photo of the two alongside actress Emma Thompson in August.
