Title: Gay history

Now that Section 28's been repealed, Christopher thinks it's time for schools and museums to be more open about the sexuality of historical figures.

The North East has a huge amount of Roman history, but the sexuality of some of the key figures is glossed over. Christopher thinks it's important for people to learn the truth and thinks it's especially important for children to learn that being gay doesn't have to be a barrier to becoming one of life's key players.
