LGBT Eagle One Nation Under God 2 Sides Shirt, hoodie, tank top
Benjamin Carr, director at Kent Pride
As a gay man, Benjamin Carr, 28, often finds himself approached while out in bars or in public questioned if he ‘looks gay’ – and often it’s uncertain how unsafe the situation will become.
Wearing a particular shirt or nail polish much of the time isn’t worth the confrontation, but Benjamin says hiding is ‘awful’ all the same.
As the project director at Kent Pride, he said: “Once, outside of Aldi in Canterbury my partner and I were walking and were approached by two middle aged mums with children and prams and were told to stop.
“They said we were an awful example for their kids and that it was ‘disgusting’ what we were doing. We weren’t even kissing or hugging, we were just holding hands.
