In 2014 it was revealed that Republican North Carolina Senate candidate Steve Wiles once performed as a drag queen, proving once again that conservative, anti-gay activists aren’t always what they seem. This list of conservative anti-gay activists who turned out to be gay includes state and national leaders whose homophobic convictions were actually nothing more than lies.
Even though politicians might claim to be morally opposed to the same-sex lifestyle, there are some who turn out not to so be anti-gay themselves, at least in their personal lives. Our nation’s Congress is certainly not immune to hypocrisy, especially when it comes to same-sex marriage and equal rights for the LGBT community.
While some straight politicians might sincerely believe that being gay is wrong, these famous anti-gay legislators who turned out to be gay men prove that all along, while they’re out there in the public hating on the gay lifestyle, they are secretly living it. Maybe these homophobic (and hypocritical!) politicians who were outed in scandals will find some inner peace now that the world knows who they really are.
