Outing Closeted Gay Politicians
Today, we replay an INSIDE SCOOP classic, Mark’s interview with openly gay Congressman Barney Frank on when it’s appropriate to “out” gay politicians. Originally broadcast July 15, 2004.
Is it appropriate to “out” a closeted gay politician when he/she votes against gay rights?
How about a closeted gay staffer who works for a homophobe?
Our very Special Guest, openly gay Congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts
and, in the second half of the hour: Chris Crain, Editor of the Washington Blade (Washington’s gay newspaper), which recently reported a gay staffer working for notoriously anti-gay Republican Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma.
