Rhona Cameron is a Scottish comedian. She rose to prominence via the stand-up comedy circuit, and became a regular on British television in the 1990s.

"Statistically, homophobic bullying is still a big problem in schools, and a big factor in teen suicide. I was bullied for a time at school. I lived in fear of people turning up at my house and shouting stuff. Events that happen at school can scar you. I hadn't heard of any lesbians when I was at school; I used to look up 'lesbian' in the dictionary as I didn't know what it meant. It is disappointing that there are so few athletes out. If you are at a rough comprehensive, you're not going to know about some novelist, but you'll know about sports stars and pop stars. There are at least six gay Premier League footballers who are closeted; some of the female sporting legends of all time were, and are, gay."

In small towns if you live outside of the box at all you will like its back in the days of the Salem witch trials and everyone turns their back on you.Something as silly as who you love can get you shunned

Shes absolutely right about some of the most brilliant stars remain in the closet out of fear of rejection.About time we get over what you fancy in the bedroom and start accepting people for the indifferences.
