Future Dr Strange pens letter in support of gay marriage in Ireland

d02ab74830787c20b94e7871ba108f28

The should-be Dr Strange writes a personal appeal to Irish people to vote for gay marriage rights. In a heartfelt plea he recalls here how his gay brother Eamon was targeted by homophobic bullies.

I think I found out my brother wasn’t grovelling in heterosexual mud like most boys our age when I was around 12. I remember feeling surprised. Intrigued. Curious. Not bi-curious before you start getting ideas. (yeah, not a great start, Col'n)

I was curious because it was different from anything I’d known or heard of and yet it didn’t seem unnatural to me. I had no reference for the existence of homosexuality. I had seen, by that age, no gay couples together. I just knew my brother liked men and, I repeat, it didn’t seem unnatural to me.
