    Peter Tatchell, the UK's most prominent homosexual activist, has done more than advocating the abolition of the age of consent, he has broken the age of consent law in Britain: "As a gay 18-year-old Australian, anti-Vietnam war draft-dodger, he came to the UK in 1971 and set up home with a 16-year-old gay lover in Shepherd’s Bush. The pair despised the law and so defied it." The homosexual age of consent in England then was 21, not 16. Later he campaigned for lowering it to 16, and now he wants it lowered again to 14. The trend is clear. When...

    The campaigning zeal for gay rights of Peter Tatchell has earned him a measure of broad support to the same extent it has resulted in profound disquiet and suspicion. Remarkably, in unequal measure, even religious opinion is divided. Exactly what are his ambitions and from where does he draw inspiration?

Not surprisingly, this has led many to think his concern for human rights is broadly based. They are wrong. As a gay 18-year-old...

    PETER TATCHELL, the campaigner beaten up when he attempted a citizen’s arrest on Robert Mugabe, is planning a fresh confrontation during the Zimbabwean leader’s visit to Paris this week. Tatchell — dubbed the British government’s “gay gangster” by Mugabe — will apply for a warrant in a Paris magistrates’ court tomorrow demanding the Zimbabwean leader be arrested under the United Nations torture convention. His claim is backed by affidavits from victims of the regime. “If Slobodan Milosevic (the former Serbian leader) can be put on trial for human rights abuses, why not Robert Mugabe?” said Tatchell. Britain last week backed...
