Statement on speculation about Curtis Pritchard

Jeff Ingold, Head of Media Engagement, Stonewall UK said: ‘Speculating about a person’s sexual orientation is extremely unhelpful and needs to stop. No one should ever feel pressured to label who they are and questioning people is not how we create an environment where those in the public eye feel comfortable being open about who they are.

‘While having visible LGBT role models can have a hugely positive impact, especially for young LGBT people, we don’t yet live in a society that is accepting of everyone’s sexual orientation or gender identity. That’s why it’s so important we continue to destigmatise conversations around male sexuality to build a world where all LGBT people are accepted without exception.’
