More than 100 people have decended on News Corp's HQ in Sydney - protesting a graphic in yesterday's Daily Telegraph which claimed being gay was bad for youths health.
The protesters carried rainbow flags and drew a chalk rainbow outside the office.
Yesterday the tabloid published a graphic entitled: “Fat Chance Of Being Healthy: Young Aussies Only Have Themselves To Blame” and it included factors relating to obesity, alcohol abuse, drug taking and sexuality.
Yesterday The Daily Telegraph’s editor, Christopher Dore, issued a statement claiming: “the headline clearly referred to the health issue of obesity, as did the accompanying story, which focused on diet.”
“It is a statistical picture of young people’s lives, from where they live to how they live,” he said. “Unfortunately the presentation of the story has been misinterpreted. The story in no way suggests, or intends to suggest, that same-sex relationships are unhealthy.”
