MP Nigel Evans reveals he is gayDecember 20th, 2010 - 9:44 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
London, Dec 20 (THAINDIAN NEWS) After years of speculations, the Lancashire Member of Parliament, Nigel Evans has come clean about his sexual orientation.
Nigel revealed during an interview on Sunday that he is gay. He said that he has often been bullied into lying about his sexual orientation. He was determined that has to change and came out clearly on Sunday to reveal that he was gay. He said that he was forced to come out clear because of the blackmail of a Labor MP to expose his sexual preference.
The announcement as expected shocked many but several others said they suspected it for a long time and as such were not that surprised about it.
He got some backing though from a local group. The steward at the Clitheroe Conservative Club said that he doesn’t expect the revelation to do any much damage to the MP. He said that he believes that most people in Britain were now tolerable and would accept the MP’s sexual orientation nonetheless.
He said that, “Anybody who knows him would know he is that way inclined. It will not affect his standing, not in today’s society, it is more accepting these days.”
