Graham Norton launches selfie campaign for LGBTI rights

LAST UPDATED // Tuesday, 17 June 2014 09:50 Written by // Cec Busby

Popular talk show host Graham Norton has launched a selfie campaign as part of Pride.

The comedian and presenter is lending his support to a national campaign  in the UK  that sees his face emblazoned on the sides of buses urging people to join him in supporting human rights for LGBTI people.

The campaign uses the hashtag #FreedomTo  and encourages people to upload a photo to their Twitter or Facebook holding up a piece of paper saying what is important to them about freedom.

Norton’s paper reads: Freedom to be camp.

He told the media:  “Right now we have so many freedoms and yet suddenly all sorts of weird issues are coming up – issues like transphobia or the idea that camp people are somehow betraying the gay community ... and I just feel like, actually, no!

“There's room for everyone. I just think you've got to let a diverse community be diverse.”
