Jan Moir, the Daily Mail columnist whose column on the death of gay Boyzone singer Stephen Gately provoked widespread anger, won the Stonewall Bigot of the Year Awards last night jointly with Father John Owen, the priest who said most paedophiles were gay.

Moir was a late nominee, but was chosen after Stonewall received an unprecedented response from its members following the publication of her piece last month.

Boyzone won the Entertainer of the Year prize, which was accepted by Stephen Gately's civil partner Andrew Cowles.

He got the biggest cheers of the night while walking up to the stage to collect the award from host Gok Wan. Cowles told the crowd that Shane Lynch from the band had hoped to attend the awards but was not able to make it.

May I be the first to congratulate her on her win.

It was richly deserved and well earned. *dripping with sarcasm*

Her article was one of the most grotesquely inappropriate articles ever published. That the woman did not see that, and afterwards still thought she had been the "victim" of some gay witchhunt, when 90% of those complaining were heterosexual and the sort of people who don't normally complain formally about articles, speaks volumes for her degree of delusion.

She has gone down in infamy for what she wrote, how she wrote it and when she wrote it. May I also nominate her for the Mary Ellen Synon 'How to make yourself a hate figure to everyone by one article' award.

Some how it is fitting that the 'bonk of England' and Mad Moir now write for the same rag!

Any idea who the other nominees were, out of interest?
Sorry, i googled it but i could not see any list of bigot of the year nominees!!!


Here is a list of all the winners though:

Hero of the Year - chosen by Stonewall thousands of supporters – Reverend Scott Rennie. The Church of Scotland’s first openly gay minister was inducted in July in the face of shrill opposition from some quarters yet backed by his own Aberdeen congregation.

Broadcast of the Year – Corrective Rape in South Africa. Samira Ahmed’s special report from Johannesburg focused on a horrific phenomenon emerging in South Africa – the targeting of lesbians for ‘corrective rape’. The judges singled out the report as a ‘shocking piece of television, which cast a light on discrimination suffered by lesbians, all too often overlooked in the media.’

Entertainer of the Year – Boyzone. The Judges noted the huge influence that boy bands have on young people in particular. Stephen Gateley’s brave decision to come out was an important step and the band made pop history with their video featuring a same-sex couple a year ago (which was accepted by Stephen Gately's civil partner Andrew Cowles)

Journalist of the Year – Johann Hari and Joan Bakewell. The judges described Joan Bakewell as ‘an institution, who has supported us for decades.’ Johann Hari was described as ‘a force to be reckoned with. He’s quickly established himself as a leading commentator.’

Politician of the Year – Ben Bradshaw MP. The first person ever elected as an openly-gay politician to reach Cabinet rank, Ben Bradshaw won and held on to his parliamentary seat in the face of strong homophobic opposition.

Publication of the Year – g3. The leading free magazine for gay and bisexual women g3 this year celebrated its 100th issue.

Stonewall Sports Award – Michael Hill. This year saw Michael achieve a season best of sixth place in the British 125cc Motor biking Championship.

Writer of the Year – Sarah Waters. For her fifth novel, The Little Stranger, which impressed fans and critics and was short-listed for the 2009 Man Booker prize.

Stonewall & Barclays Community Group of the Year – Allsorts youth project, based in Brighton. Winner of a £5,000 cheque presented at the ceremony.

Bigot of the Year – Father John Owen (voted by thousands of Stonewall supporters) and Jan Moir. Father John Owen claimed on BBC One’s The Big Questions that the majority of child abuse was carried out by gay men. Jan Moir became a late entrant to the award, following unprecedented requests from Stonewall supporters prompted by her Daily Mail piece on the death of Stephen Gately.

Jesus this woman:
BBC News - Singer Katherine Jenkins defends London Marathon look

"At the weekend, the fame-hungry Welsh mezzo-soprano managed to top even her own high standards of dumbfounding public appearances."

She then criticised the singer's appearance, describing her £200 Prada sunglasses, full make-up, "immaculate" ponytail and "raisin-sized" diamond earrings.

The columnist went on: "Among all the runners at the start of the race on Sunday, 32-year-old Katherine was uniquely red carpet magnifico."

She added: "Perhaps the only miracle was that she didn't run backwards, in high heels, while singing the Welsh national anthem at the top of her voice."
Moir's latest stunt is to attack this singer girl who raises 25k for the cancer support charity who helped ease her dying father's pain, runs a marathon and gets slated for the audacity of doing her hair up, wearing earrings and being pretty.

And Moir the clown says this one week after the Boston Marathon!
Marathon runners are in most people's good books at the moment.

I am not a fan of the Daily Mail or its readers.
However the comments on that article are interesting.
Katherine Jenkins simply can't help stealing the limelight, says JAN MOIR | Mail Online
If you sort the comments by Best Rated, the top 10 comments are all Pro Katherine Jenkins/Anti Moir.
How did Moir and the editors get it so wrong?

Daily Mail in bigotry shock. Seriously, it's no longer a surprise to hear these cretins spew vile hate week after week. They've been able to get away with it for too long.

I'm confused. Katherine Jenkins is a rug muncher?

Lets face it, to them she "appeared to criticise civil partnerships and the gay lifestyle" no evidence of bigotry what so ever. The organized Gay movement, as such in America, now have the clout to destroy peoples careers they deem a 'threat'. Just remember we are supposed to be living in a democracy not some Kangaroo court, these awards ceremonies serve to take on a threatening aspect of a 'we are watching you' Paranoia.
