Full Story: Daily Mail columnist Jan Moir wins Stonewall Bigot of the Year award - from Pink NewsJan 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.
My opinion: Serves her right!!!!
