Labour MP Threatened To ‘Out’ Tory Nigel Evans
Tory Nigel Evans has said he hopes his decision to reveal he is gay will help others be open after revealing a Labour MP had threatened to “out” him.
Mr Evans, a deputy speaker in the Commons, declared his homosexuality on the eve of the launch of a new help group for politicians and Westminster staff.
The MP for Ribble Valley, whose sexual orientation was an open secret in Parliament, would not name the MP concerned but said he wanted to help end such “nastiness”.
“The MP was saying to anyone who would listen, ‘Why is it that Nigel Evans leads a life whereby he is gay to some people and not others?’,” he told The Mail On Sunday.
“I could not afford it to be used as leverage against me. I couldn’t take the risk. I don’t want any other MP to face that kind of nastiness again.
