Gay actor and singer John Barrowman has been heaped with praise and criticism ever since he kissed a male dancer at the opening of the Commonwealth Games.
But there has been one piece of applause that has come from an unlikely source.
Grace Eriyo, a coach with the Ugandan team, has praised the kiss.
She was quoted in The Times as saying: ‘Where we come from it is illegal to kiss a man, but here you can have it on the TV, right in front of the Queen.
‘To me that is so great.’
