"I've been going to gay bars for as long as I can remember," Craig said on the podcast Lunch with Bruce. "One of the reasons: because I don't get into fights in gay bars that often." The 53-year-old said he started going to gay bars when he was young because he wanted to avoid ending up "being in a punch-up" during a night out, which he said happened "quite a lot" in straight venues.
