Yahoo Profiles Internet Outing Activist

Kudos to the great Mike Rogers for being featured in a Yahoo News story on his work outing gay politicos who are harming the interests of LGBT people. Mike through his amazing blog BlogActive is engaged in heroic work and should be commended for his efforts to call out the hypocrites who live an undercover gay lifestyle while using their political power to harm us and stop our fight for equal rights. The decision to remain in the closet or to come out ceases to be personal and private when a person is engaged in political action that is hurting the rest of us.

Its nuts to think that a powerful congressman like Republican Mark Foley could not come of the closet as a wealthy, white, man with political connections out the wazoo when 14, 15 year old kids are coming out in places like the Bronx and South Dakota. If you want to spend your time being cowering in the closet, that’s your business. Don’t make it our business by doing things that will impede our progress.

Here is a taste of the Yahoo profile:

Rogers, a longtime gay activist, started blogactive.com in 2004, using it to yank out of the closet at least two dozen high-ranking political figures, including senators, congressmen and Bush administration officials.
He’s outed so many closeted gay politicos, he’s starting to make Capitol Hill look like Brokeback Mountain. All of them, he says, use their positions to actively oppose the equal rights of gay citizens while at the same time, secretly live a gay life.

    I have always liked and applauded Rogers work. It is truly sickening how closeted politicos could vote against the very thing they are. They are the perfect example of self hate and denial.
