Born in 1945 and educated to post-graduate level with first degrees in Law, English and Education (x2). My doctoral thesis was a sociological study of the Acquisition of Culture. I was married (now divorced) and have three sons and a granddaughter.
I have lived in South Africa with my life-partner, David, since 2004 and I am Secretary of the Eastern Cape Gay & Lesbian Association. Much of the work we do is concerned with Counselling and Wellness, particularly the ongoing wellness of those exposed to the Human Immunodefficiency Virus (HIV).
