Life was grim for gay people in the ’50s and ’60s – I was there
Over recent weeks, Bruce Arnold has been opposing the Marriage Equality Referendum in print and on broadcast media.
Despite not being an acknowledged expert in the Irish language and having no legal training, he publicly challenged the Irish wording of the referendum. I decided to ignore his contributions.
However, I was astonished this morning to hear him say on the radio that the grim picture painted of the living conditions of gay people was a fiction.
