June 1998

Soundbite of the month: “the age at which we know ‘what we are’ is immaterial. I am not at all sure that sexuality is fixed for anyone at any age and I believe that the numbers who are bisexual are far greater than it is fashionable to acknowledge. Sexuality is quite a fluid thing.” – Matthew Paris, columnist, broadcaster and former Tory MP, writing in Gay Times
