In all of my musical, equality and advisory roles, music continues to be a key tool in eradicating discrimination.

We do need to tell President Putin and those horrendous vigilante gangs who hunt down gay men and women on the streets of Russia that what they are doing is vehemently wrong; and we do need to be explicit in singling this European country out over its human rights reputation, but we must allow time and the opportunity for education.

Lots of kids say they are going to run away, some mean it, some do not; some slip out and hang out at the end of the street until they get hungry, bored or realise that their bluff has been called. For me the notion of running away had become very real.

LGBT History Month is a good time to consider whether and, if so, how lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are represented in popular media.

What I'm thinking about during this particular LGBT History Month is how LGBT sexualities are portrayed in young adult literature. I'm frequently interested in what messages we send to young readers through literature, and I think LGBT literature in particular can be quite a problematic area.

I feel there's a change, a positive movement towards acceptance, inclusion and honesty. I used to think I was the only one. The only gay in the village.
