Important to fight for rights
Sir -- The deep misunderstanding of the LGBT community and the phobic attitudes held by individuals such as Eamon Delaney frighten me. (Sunday Independent, Oct 30, 2011). On the other hand, after reading Mr Delaney's opinions, I feel an even greater sense of how important it is for LGBT activists to continue challenging prejudice and fighting for equal rights in Ireland. The need for us to keep fighting for equality is just as critical today as it was in the past. There is no doubt that discrimination is alive and well in this country and Mr Delaney's views serve to cement in my mind that we must never, ever become complacent where our rights are concerned.
