Openly gay 17-year-old Will Emery appointed as head boy at top public school

Aug 25, 2013

comments A teenager has become the first ever openly gay head boy to be given the role at one of the country's elite group of public schools. Will Emery, 17, who came out to his family three years ago, was voted in by more than 1,000 pupils and staff at Brighton College in Sussex, one of the most successful schools of its type in Britain, with boarding fees starting at £27,000 a year. Emery, the son of a banker, said: 'I don't think my sexuality had any impact on my being chosen, but in other periods, when people had to hide their sexuality, it could have been a different story. ' The new head boy appointed at Brighton College is an openly gay teenager. It is the first time a top public school has made such an appointment Headmaster Richard Cairns said there was a huge round of applause when the announcement was made and said teenagers between the ages of 13 and 18 see sexuality as a 'so-what' issue. He added: 'He was a very popular choice - the rugby players voted for him along with many others - but I bet if I wrote to the old boys and said our head boy was openly gay, some of them would think it's very strange indeed.
