Gay nudists are "pollution", says Welsh Labour councillor

A Welsh Labour councillor has sparked anger, after claiming gay men were a “polluting” force in his local area.

Harry Bebell, who represents the Neath Port Talbot area, complained in a recent newsletter to residents that gay men were using the Crymlyn Burrows beach area for having sex.

He also criticised local police, claiming they would not act on the problem. Police are yet to respond to the accusations.

However, local gay people say the beach is only used for nudist sunbathing and not as a cruising ground.

They say Bebell’s comments are stirring up anti-gay sentiment in the area.

According to the Evening Post, Bebell wrote in a newsletter that the problem was not being tackled effectively enough.

"The other gay pollution still continues, with the police tied hand and foot by the Human Rights Act," he wrote.

He told the newspaper that he had no intention of backing down over the comments, despite facing criticism and accusations of being “plain nasty” by one gay man.

"If someone is offended by my newsletter, then hard luck,” he said.

“It may not be politically correct but it is a fact. It is pollution because it is stopping members of the public from using an amenity.”
