16 Anti-Gay Activists Who Were Caught Being Gay

This list will continue to grow as new anti-gay activists come out of the closet, albeit against their will (most of the time). Keep your eyes peeled for more!

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.

    Pastor Eddie Long

    f t g r p @
    Georgia Pastor Eddie Long is a Baptist and famed televangelist in his area. In 2004, he led a march to Dr. Martin Luther King's grave in the name of defining marriage as between a man and a woman. He has also been quoted as saying that his church can "deliver" people from homosexuality.

    Four young men (ages 21, 20, 23, and 22) filed lawsuits against Long for using his fame and influence as pastor of New Birth Missionary (*snicker*) Baptist Church to coerce them into sexual relationships; he settled out of court.  According to the lawsuits, the relationships lasted months and occurred during the boys' late teens. The age of consent in Georgia is 16, so the issue was not under age sex,  but whether he used his power to get the boys to do sexual favors for him. 

    Eddie Long was accused of wrongly using his influence, taking the boys to places such as Kenya, paying for their hotel rooms, and giving them gifts such as cars, cash, and jewelry in exchange for mutual masturbation, oral sex, and sensual massaging.
