Letter sent to me by early gay rights campaigner Michael Schofield (1919 - 2014)

Michael Schofield was an early gay rights campaigner here in the UK. He was involved in the fight to get gay sex decriminalised in the 1950s and 60s; eventually, this happened in 1967.

I wrote a letter to Schofield in 2013 thanking him for the work he did and how much, as a young gay man, his work and the work of those early campaigners meant to me. It's thanks to Schofield and others who were also involved in the fight for decriminalisation, that gay and bisexual men can today have sex with each other without the fear of going to prison for it.

His life partner, Anthony, responded to me on Schofield's behalf. I have attached images of the letter below:

And here is what the letter says:

"Dear [my name],

Thank you for your kind letter. I am pleased to learn that my books, written 50 years ago, have proved to be so helpful.

Although the situation in the UK is now very different to what it was when I was writing in the nineteen sixties, the problems we encounter with our family and those we love still have to be managed very carefully and with great understanding.

I am pleased to know that you have a loving and stable relationship with your partner and I wish you well in finding a comfortable apartment which you can share together. I hope his parents are as understanding as yours seem to be.

I am glad you are so interested in history and the situation prevailing when I was young. You should realise that when I was young, homosexuality was rarely discussed and, if it was, it was considered either a criminal offence or a disease and the general public dismissed the subject by saying either homosexuals should go to prison or to a psychiatric hospital. I never discussed my situation with my parents.

As you know, I am now aged 93 and rarely leave my bed. I’m being cared for at home by my partner, Anthony. Should you happen to be in London some time, he would be pleased to meet you and answer any questions you may care to put to him.

Anthony and I send you our best wishes, and we are happy to learn you have a loving friend.

Best wishes

Michael and Anthony

P.S. [my name] – Michael finds it difficult to write letters, so I have replied on his behalf. But don’t worry! – He is 100% in agreement with what I have written on his behalf."

The reason I'm posting this and sharing this with you, is ju

International solidarity message with campaigners for trans rights in Singapore

On 26 Jan, three people were arrested for protesting outside the Ministry of Education in Singapore.

The protest against transphobia in schools came after a transgender student, Ashlee, went public about the discrimination she faced at the hands of her school and the Ministry of Education. She was sent home several times for having long hair and not adhering to the dress code. She was told to reduce her hormone replacement therapy or be expelled.

LGBTQ+ rights and the right to protest in Singapore are restricted. Gay sex is criminalised. Education workers and others are organising to demand that the Ministry of Education end trans discrimination in schools and ensure trans and wider LGBTQ + education. Over 500 education, health and social service workers have signed a statement: see https://sites.google.com/view/transfriendlystatement

Trans rights and the right to protest are international. We stand in solidarity with education workers, students and others in Singapore who are fighting to defend trans rights and the right to protest.

The term campaigner fits so well as an ENFP

I feel like every time I start liking something, I go on on a full advertisement campaign mode. I promote everything I like to my friend as if I’m gaining anything from doing that lol. Sometimes I get too impatient and start sending multiple stuffs at the same time.

Also, I always get the urge to start a conversation about literally everything that crosses my mind and it’s as I’m oversharing lol.

Is this an ENFP thing?
