Ken Mehlman newest "Gay" Advocate
Sometimes people change views and decide to face their pasts, problems and even sexual orientation. The former Bush campaign manager, Ken Mehlman announced recently that he is a gay man after 43 years of keeping this view to himself.
It's not surprising to hear people tell the public they are homosexual because many people have done that since the Democrats have taken office in 2008 . Gays and lesbians are often in the Celebrity news and powerful men who are very attractive have many types of people working for them.
Former President Bush has not commented on Mehlman's public statement as of today. He may not have known that Ken Mehlman, former chief of the Republican National Committee and President Bush's campaign manager in 2004 was homosexual.
Mehlman has told family and friends that he is a "gay" according to the The Atlantic.
What is surprising to many RNC members and political followers across the country is that Mehlman intends to devote his personal time to "Gay Advocacy" which can be a very heated and debated opportunity because of its controversial implications.
Gay political movements and advocacy members truthful about sexual orientation may find this cause a full-time job.
Last year Mackenzie Phillips announced another controversial issue by writing a book about incest love. She told Americans and the rest of the world how she and her father made love (sexual intercourse) to one another for years.
More and more female and male entertainers have opened up in the past couple of years and told Americans that they are bisexual. Vanessa Carlton was interviewed during her performances in Nashville, Tennessee last year which was heavily publicized.
Many more controversial issues have developed during President Obama's presidency.
In an interview with the magazine, Mehlman said he's going public with his sexual identity now because he wants to become an advocate for gay marriage. "It's taken me 43 years to get comfortable with this part of my life," Mehlman said. "Everybody has their own path to travel, their own journey, and for me, over the past few months, I've told my family, friends, former colleagues, and current colleagues, and they've been wonderful and supportive. The process has been something that's made me a happier and better person. It's something I wish I had done years ago."
