I am appalled that my attempt to tell the story of a brave, openly gay soldier during WW2 was rejected by the BBC People's History section on the grounds that it is "inappropriate and defamatory".

Perhaps the BBC should make it clear that it only wants contributions about "heterosexuals" who served their country in WW2.

Who said homophobia was a thing of the past?

Hi Peter,

All overnight decisions made by the moderators are reviewed by the BBC People's History team when they return to the office in the morning.

We'll review the moderators decision as soon as possible, and contact you by email.

Best

Peta Haigh
Senior Producer, BBC Communities
