The End of an Era

Damn. I’ve just found out that Antony Grey died on April 30th. He was a lifelong campaigner for gay rights – and was one of the major forces for law reform in the UK during the 1960s, leading to the 1967 act of Parliament.
He had been ill with leukemia for a long while but that didn’t stop him from commenting on current issues in his blog, Anticant’s Arena, which he wrote until his illness overtook him.
As Peter Tatchell wrote: we all walk in his shadow.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
