    Too long an article, but interesting.

    "He was the British extreme right's most feared streetfighter. But almost right up to his death 20 years ago, Nicky Crane led a precarious dual existence.

    A local organiser of extreme far-right group the British Movement, Crane - who was covered in Nazi tattoos - had a reputation for brutal violence.

    But he was also concealing a secret from his enemies and his fascist comrades alike. Crane was gay.

    Nicky Crane was interviewed as part of a Channel 4 documentary called Out in the early 1990s. This is a clip from that interview."

    He led double life. I like this quote:

    "Just as some in the gay community refused to believe that a gay man could be a neo-Nazi, others on the extreme right were unable to acknowledge that a neo-Nazi could be a gay man" (Kelly).


    What is interesting is that he came out in 90s:
    "Eventually he made a decision. It was time to end the double life once and for all" (Kelly).

    So yeah, even far-right extremists do come out icon_smile.gif
