Ronnie Biggs: Gay Icon

Former Great Train Robber, Ronnie Biggs, who was a controversial figure in the history of robbing mail trains and who was hailed by some as a gay icon, including his fellow crooks Ron and Reggie Kray, died of a stroke this morning, Pink Star News can exclusively reveal.

Although he was on the run after escaping from prison at the time, if Biggs had been an MP then, he might possibly have voted to decriminalise homosexuality in England and Wales in 1967, who can say?

Biggs later lived in Rio de Janeiro, the gay capital of Brazil. 

According to an anonymous source, Mr Biggs had absolutely no intention of going to the Sochi Winter Olympics - an obvious slap-in-the-face to President Putin and his neo-Nazi anti-gay dictatorship.

Darren Carr, who is openly gay and the author of the acclaimed memoir, Ronnie & Me, talking exclusively to Pink Star News said; "Ronnie wasn't just a Great Train Robber, he was a fabulous train robber! And the greatest British gay icon after dear old Maggie Thatcher."

Best-selling 60s crime novelist Jake Ornott, who is openly gay, wrote in The Independent; "He was always good to his old mum, and he only hurt his own - and that driver that got coshed, obviously. You could leave the back door of your train open in them days..."

Bill Summerhill of Stonewall told Pink Star News; "There were 15 great train robbers, so statistically at least five of them were probably gay. It's a sad indictment of homophobia in the criminal community that none have felt able to come out yet."

Human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell was unavailable to send a press release about himself.
