Happy Birthday Peter Tatchell

January 25, 2012 § 1 Comment

Today is Peter Tatchell’s 60th birthday. He is a courageous activist full of integrity – fighting injustice with a seemingly endless bundle of energy and balls. This profile of him made me realise how much more I can be doing.

Pink News asked Stephen Fry to write a poem to mark Peter Tatchell’s 60th birthday – and this is what he came up with. Happy birthday Peter!

You are maddening.
You are threatening.
You are insanely brave.
You have moved us forward.
You sometimes embarrass us.
We would so often look the other way.
But we owe you, Peter.
We owe you so much.
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Peter Tatchell
Scourge of hatred
And upholder of honour

You would hate to be called it
But you are our knight
Our champion
Our friend.

Happy birthday

    Can’t believe he is 60! So much energy and passion for the cause. Met him when I was 20 and had such positive impact on how I looked at my own campaigning to make the world a better place. Well done in everything you have achieve so far………..
