Time to come out and get some fresh air
Come on out, you'll feel better
BlogActive is celebrating Coming Out Day, and we didn't want leave any of the homophobes behind.Especially the gay ones.
It's a special day for the lesbian and gay community: National Coming Out Day. Since we know some anti-gay political folk are unable to wrap their little minds around the concept of "coming out," blogACTIVE.com is happy to help. Here's the list of all thirty individuals blogACTIVE.com has reported on in the past 15 months. At the rate of two per month, the site has been shaking up politics in Washington and around the USA.
I've been asked a few times, "How many people have you reported on?" While I've never kept a count, I did go through the blog and made a list. In 15 months of reporting on hypocrites in the government, blogACTIVE has told the stories of 30 individuals:
United States Representatives The rest of the gang...
US Rep. Ed Schrock (VA)
US Rep. David Drier (CA)
US Rep. James McCrery (LA)
US Rep. Mark Foley (FL)

Dan Gurley, National Field Director, Republican National Committee

So why did I run this list? Because the people on it aid homophobes or support them. You don't get a free pass to make other people's lives miserable because you don't like yourself or think you're an exception, as in they will hate other people, but not you. Bullshit.
