And how do you know that's not the website/the pictures being referred to? It's an obscure premium (i.e. subscription-only) gay website, it was by your own account published 13 years ago without being noticed by anyone....
And what exactly has having some nude photos appear on a website to do with journalistic integrity and honesty? How is he 'playing the discrimination card for his own misleading self-interest' - he has just been fired, how is that in his self-interest?! There's not exactly a huge number of paying jobs for theatre critics going, more are being cut all the time, and while he has received sympathy, that doesn't pay the bills.
You must have a subscription to have seen the pictures, because I've just found the website and I certainly can't. Unless I'm just not recognising a picture of him from 20-odd years ago - but then again, it's kind of odd that you're so sure you can. I can't even identify which issue is from February 2000 - they've only got volume and issue numbers showing, not years and months.
Actually, I'm wondering if it was you - who has only joined this forum this afternoon and only made this one post - who told The Express about the pictures. They didn't stumble across them - someone tipped them off.
