British Conservative cabinet minister David Mundell has come out as gay.
The Tory secretary for Scotland who also serves as the MP for Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale, said coming out was ‘one of the most important decisions’ of his life.
The 53-year-old is believed to have told Prime Minister David Cameron ‘in recent days’ about his decison.
On his blog, Mundell said he came out as a new years’ resolution.
‘Having taken one of the most important decisions of my life and resolved to come out publically as gay in 2016, I just want to get on with it, and now, just like that, I have said it. How can it be both so easy and so hard to say a few short words?’ he said.
