I too lived under Section 28. I marched in Thatcher's London streets over it.

I also was arrested in NYC, Philly & DC protests because gay friends were dying & Silence=Death.

Live your smug privilege, just know you're complicit against us, not some freaking role model for us.
"I lived through it & it did me no harm."
What the bloody hell?!
The havoc wreaked by anti-gay ordinances like Section 28 ruined lives. And someone explain to @matthewtoomer that the GAY MAN who helped end WWII in the UK, #AlanTuring, killed himself b/c of anti-gay laws, FFS.
And his whole TL is full of equally smug nonsense. It's not legal to be gay or lesbian in 103 countries. There is NO protection against anti-#LGBTQ discrimination in the US.
We were silent for 100s of years and str8 folks did NOT "tolerate us," they jailed, raped and killed us.
