Long-time gay rights activist Peter Tatchell completes our trio of
Lifetime Achievers at the Attitude Awards. Though Peter was once routinely bullied
and bloodied in the street, he
is now lauded even by the Daily
Mail for his efforts to tackle some of histories most disturbing characters
such as Robert Mugabe and Nick Griffin.
Peter spends his every waking hour working to improve the lives of others, with
unparalleled levels of humility and self-sacrifice.
and totally fearless, Peter has been on the front line of LGBT emancipation for
decades, the scourge of homophobic and hypocritical politicians and public
figures. He is affectionately hailed as ‘the prince, the lord, the pope’ by Sir
Ian McKellen when they recently met again for their Attitude cover shoots,
which is high praise indeed. Well deserved, Peter.
