The acting legend was on campus for a talk organised by Liverpool University Vets Society about LGBT+ rights, where he discussed the joy of coming out. The talk, which was opened by head of the society Joe made the audience both laugh and cry. He praised young people today for being encouragingly more open about LGBT+ identities.
