Sir Ian McKellen Mocks at Singapore's Gay Laws
Sir Ian McKellen found Singapore's gay laws annoying and decided to mock it by asking for a bar for homosexuals while being interviewed on TV.

McKellen, who announced decades ago that he is a homosexual, was in Singapore for a performance, reports contactmusic.com.

I was rather naughty because I was on an early morning show, the sort of show that happens all over the world on TV, where you get a couple who are clearly not married or related that flirt all the time, usually an older man with a younger woman."

He added: "At the end of the interview, they asked what was I looking forward to doing while I was in Singapore. And I looked at the man, who was clearly straight, and said, `Can you recommend any decent gay bars?' which would be illegal in every possible way. I looked at the playback of the programme afterwards and I've never seen the credits come up (on the screen) so quickly."
