Nigel Evans is on this list. Nigel Evans who believed the best way to protect children was to support Clause 28? Nigel Evans who has voted against LGBT rights more times than he's voted for?

I give up with Stonewall. I really do. All you need do is be wealthy/in the public eye and gay and they'll fawn all over you regardless of your record.

Well I will say that Evans has since come out and regrets those votes, but I do understand where you are coming from.

stonewall's record on supporting bisexual people is also dire. They really mean 'Gay' people.

'Some people are bisexual. Get over it'.
