Change has been glacially slow, but it is now possible for men to live together without much arching of eyebrows, and it is almost unremarkable for an MP to be openly queer; even QCs and captains of industry have publicly dipped their toes in the water, and we accept the ordination of queer priests, though squeamishly (and unrealistically) requiring them to be chaste in thought as well as deed. Most of us – and certainly the generations for whom, when they were young, any expression of homosexuality, no matter how trivial, was outside the law and “pretty policemen” (the Met’s own term for them) were sent out to tempt and arrest the unwary – are content with civil partnerships and have not pleaded for gay marriage.
Thus the recent institution of civil partnerships seemed to be the final necessary reform, giving homosexuals the right to inherit each other’s property, just as may a man and his wife; and if they want a family, there is now no barrier to their adopting children – in the case of homosexual men, so long in error bundled together with paedophiles and pederasts, an astonishing recognition of moral responsibility. But every minority has within it a core of single-issue politicians and protesters who are never satisfied and always ask for more, and homosexuals, both male and female, are no exception.

Royce is meeting with her publicist to, as she says, “discuss business.” She can barely keep a straight face while she says that. Love tells Royce that Royce has an upcoming meeting for a hip-hop CD. “You got me doing like all these appearances,” Royce says. ” I don’t think Royce realizes that most working adults have deadlines. I’m not saying that you need to live in a box, but I’m sorry, you need to live in a box.” What? “You about to get married in six months.” Chad says that he did a 180. “You’ve got too much time on your hands.” I have to agree with Pecola on that one. She sounds like she should have a book on the display shelf next to Zane. “All I know is you need to get it together,” she says. I have never lied about it, never denied it, but I did learn to dissemble, which is why I think of it as a predicament, a menacing situation.At school, 70 years ago, it hardly mattered until we were in the Upper Sixth and authority was thrust on some of us, but National Service would have been impossible had the Army known – and it was while I was in the Army that I was made terrifyingly aware of what could happen were I ever foolish enough to be open about my homosexuality.
