The news that Gareth Thomas has publicly announced his HIV status to thwart attempted blackmail by unnamed individuals in the press is extremely brave.
Gay Lawyers applauds Gareth Thomas for his admirable stance and reiterates that nobody should have to live in fear of their personal life being exposed by others. It is a testament to Gareth Thomas that he has received nothing but support from the public, and those in the public eye.
Gay Lawyers was proud to assist Gareth in his fight to defeat homophobia in football by drafting the Code of Conduct that both he and Gay Lawyers hope will be adopted by football clubs throughout the UK to defeat the abhorrent behaviour so frequently seen on the terraces of football clubs the length and breadth of the UK.
Gay Lawyers wholeheartedly supports Gareth Thomas.
