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.

The Indiana State Representative, who voted to pass a constitutional amendment defining marriage as solely something between a man and a woman, has been caught trying to bribe an 18-year-old male teen he met on Craigslist for sexual favors.
It was reported by the Indy Star that:
"The emails, sent from Hinkle's publicly listed personal address, ask the young man for "a couple hours of your time tonight" and offer him cash up front, with a tip of up to $50 or $60 "for a really good time."
The email exchange is in response to the Craigslist posting in which the young man – who lists his age as 20 in the ad but says he is 18 years old – says, "I need a sugga daddy."The young man told The Star that they met, but that he tried to leave after the man told him he was a state lawmaker. He said the lawmaker at first told him he could not leave, grabbed him in the rear, exposed himself to the young man, and then later gave him an iPad, a BlackBerry cellphone, and $100 cash to keep quiet."
