Aussie director, Stephan Elliott comes out at AACTA awards

Aussie director of' 'Priscilla' and 'Few Best Men', STEPHAN ELLIOTT, does not regret coming out at last week's AACTA awards, but admits he made a serious verbal gaffe that implied he was afraid of his family. "...It was just kind of a big white elephant in the room that we never talked about.'' Elliott said he never intended to publicly reveal his sexuality at the award ceremony, saying: ''I honestly didn't mean to go there. I just had a moment.''
Elliott said he was dismayed by what he termed ''the marriage equality war'' playing out in Australia, which he said had fallen behind the rest of the world in respecting the rights of homosexuals.
