Fatboy Slim: Supporting Marriage Equality is a ‘No Brainer’ and Talks About the Issue with Son

Pink News reports:

DJ Norman cook, otherwise known as Fatboy Slim, has launched a scathing attack on “reactionary, rightwing, homophobic idiots and religious zealots” for opposing plans to introduce marriage equality in the UK.

The dance legend made a robust defence of the worldwide campaign to equalize marriage laws for same-sex couples during an exclusive interview with Pinknews.co.uk at Brighton Pride 2012.

Norman believes the vociferous opposition by some is due to a generational gap.

He spoke of talking to his son, Woody, about equal marriage “the other day” and said the 11-year-old asked him “why anyone would have a problem with that?”

Norman replied by saying “I don’t know?”

The 49-year-old Brighton resident, and husband to TV and radio presenter Zoe Ball, also spoke of his delight at headlining Brighton Pride, which had been a personal ambition for more than a decade.

Norman managed to fit it in this year, with his busy schedule, because organisers moved the festival to a later weekend due to the London 2012 Games.

Last month, the Praise You star was seen mixing from a gigantic octopus, as part of the Olympic closing ceremony.
