Labour Party’s Andrew Adonis Came Out

Politician Andrew Adonis came out, according to ‘Gay Times’.

The politician said he is doing so because “ “you should be completely honest and open in public about who you are.”

Lord Adonis was previously married to a woman for 21 years before they got divorced in 2015. Adonis said he struggled with his sexuality for a long time.

“I think I probably knew I was gay back then [at Oxford], but I tried to suppress it, as did so many of my contemporaries,” he explained.

“It was a big thing. Society has changed so much in the last 20 years. It’s a total revolution and I think it’s one for the better.

“It was a few years ago I came to terms with who I was.

“Lots of my contemporaries have had to come to terms with who they are and realise all those deeply held assumptions we had when we were teenagers and in our 20s no longer apply.

“I mean, in the scale of things I had to deal with in my life, it was just one of them.”
