Singer and actor Noel Sullivan posts an incredibly moving tribute to the gay men that helped bring about the decriminalisation of homosexuality – and reveals he’s married!
“As a 19 year old, I was told to shut up about my sexuality. If I wanted a career, I had to be something else. Silent. It ruined me. No one was held accountable for the years of depression and self abuse that followed.
“It got to the point where I felt like I couldn’t speak out anymore because my time in the spotlight had passed and I assumed no one would care.
“It was a turbulent time but I took solace in my family and in theatre. Without the crazy, beautiful, supportive and talented people I worked with, lived with and performed for, I could never have found myself.
“After years of self doubt I finally feel free to say what I need to.
“Free to let go of the past, free to love myself. But most importantly, free to love.
“Thank you x”
Absolutely beautiful, right? The most perfect tribute we have seen or read.
Happy birthday Noel and we’re glad to see you that you have finally found your happy place.
