A British Bishop of the Church of England has declared he is homosexual.

The Bishop of the mother-church of the worldwide Anglican faith, Nicholas Chamberlain announced this in a new interview published on Saturday, September 3, 2016 after a Sunday newspaper threatened to reveal his sexuality.

He disclosed that he is in a long-term relationship with his undisclosed male partner.

“It was not my decision to make a big thing about coming out,” he said, adding that he adhered to church guidelines which stipulated that gay clergy must be celibate.

“People know I’m gay, but it’s not the first thing I’d say to anyone.

“Sexuality is part of who I am, but it’s my ministry that I want to focus on.”

He said the church knew he was gay when he became a bishop last year.

“I was myself. Those making the appointment knew about my sexual identity”, he said.

Chamberlain was consecrated last November, and all those involved in his appointment – including Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury – were aware of his personal situation.
