Should the extraordinary documentary ‘Hating Peter Tatchell’ have been called ‘On The Right Side of History’?

Easter Sunday 1989: Peter Tatchell with fellow gay rights activists invaded the pulpit of Canterbury Cathedral as Archbishop John Carey was delivering his Easter sermon being broadcast live on television to millions across the world declaring ‘Dr Carey supports discrimination against lesbian and gay people! He opposes lesbian and gay human rights. This is not a Christian teaching!’
Stephen Fry describing Peter Tatchell’s role in securing gay rights as an ‘extraordinary contribution to the happiness of millions who have never even heard of him.’
