GOProud Does Damage Control

“On behalf of the GOProud Board and its members and supporters, we want to make it very clear that ‘outing’ a gay or lesbian individual is wrong and should never be used as a political weapon. Private lives should remain just that — private. The right to disclose one’s sexual orientation belongs solely to each individual. We will continue to oppose ‘outing’ as it has never advanced a political cause but only hurts individuals and their families. We strongly regret the events of this week.” – GOProud board member Bruce Carroll, posting on his Gay Patriot blog.
