Mary threw herself into sport


Of Irish background, at grammar school, Mary Dunne, threw herself into as a way of legitimising her “difference” from other girls as she was fully aware of, though silent about, her sexuality then. Her first relationship was with a woman at University in the early seventies, which finished in 1975. At that time she was not out, knew of few gay people, and watched London Pride from the sidelines. She then spent the rest of the 1970s in a relationship with a woman who was not out and quite against being gay. She eventually went off with a bloke, which broke Mary’s heart.
