HomoQuotable - Will Coxhead

"I'm absolutely gutted that a couple of people in the gay community have ruined this for everyone else. I'm proud to be gay, proud to be an Air New Zealander and extremely proud of my role in the safety video. Obviously there are some people in the gay community that can be a little precious and need to lighten up. If anything this particular scene shows a bit of light hearted humour about the situation." - Will Coxhead (above left), flight attendant for Air New Zealand, who has removed a scene from their comical in-flight safety video in which Coxhead is rebuffed when he invites a kiss from an All Blacks rugby star.

When the clip was released back in August, I noted the grimace on the face of the rugby player, but most of you felt the moment was playful and inoffensive.
