    I just saw this when I Googled the article about Matthew Scully-Hicks:


    But when you read the article there is no mention that he is gay. I haven't read too much about this story so does anyone know why they would mention the fact that he is gay?

    You may think this is another anti-Daily Mail thread (and it probably is) but I'm generally interested in why they think him being gay is relevant..

    The article says "...just two weeks after she was formally adopted by him and his 36-year-old husband Craig."

    I think I'm going to close this thread because I've realised that there hasn't been a thread about this story already. It's a tragic story and I don't want the focus to be on a Daily Mail article.
