Patrons with Attitude!

We are truly delighted that two of our Patrons, Sir Ian McKellen and Peter Tatchell have been awarded Icon Awards for Outstanding Achievements at the recent Attitude Awards. We are very proud of them and so grateful for all that they do to support FFLAG. We have printed the citations that accompanied the awards and couldn’t agree more with the comments.
 
‘Internationally acclaimed thespian, outspoken LGBT rights activist, knight of the realm, and Gandalf to boot; Sir Ian McKellen is truly a national treasure beyond compare. Sir Ian is the man who came out when virtually no one famous would, the man who co­founded the lobby group that has changed all our lives, a man who continues to speak up for gay rights around the world.’
 
‘Though Peter was once routinely bullied and bloodied in the street, he is now lauded even by the Daily Mail for his efforts to tackle some of histories most disturbing characters such as Robert Mugabe and Nick Griffin. Peter spends his every waking hour working to improve the lives of others, with unparalleled levels of humility and self­sacrifice. Provocative, controversial and totally fearless, Peter has been on the front line of LGBT emancipation for decades, the scourge of homophobic and hypocritical politicians and public figures. ‘
