From Ian Dale\’s survey of sexuality in politics:
All this does seem to prove that political parties do attract more gay people, proportionately, than other areas of society. This is especially true among activists, I think. One or two people in previous threads have had a go at explaining this phenomenon, but I don\’ think any of them have done so very successfully.
Politics is showbusiness for ugly people. Showbusiness has a similarly high rate of gayers.
All that\’s left is to work out whether Iain actually tried on the stage or had enough self-knowledge to know that politics it was going to have to be.
