Republican Leader Ken Mehlman is Gay

It’s so heartwarming when someone like Ken Mehlman,
George W. Bush’s campaign manager in 2004 & a former
chairman of the Republican National Committee, comes out.
In his realization, Mehlman stated, “At least for me, it wasn’t
like there was a light-bulb moment. It was an evolutionary
process. The reality is, it’s taken me 43 years to come to terms
with this part of my life. The process has been something that
has made me a happier & better person. It’s something I wish
I had done years ago.’’ Yes Ken we wished you came out years
ago too.... Read More.... Updates to Come…:)

Log Cabin Republicans is very supportive and appreciative of Ken's coming out. Being gay and being conservative are not mutually exclusive. As a fellow Bush alumnus, I look forward to Ken helping me and our colleagues build a stronger and more inclusive Republican Party. Nothing presents a better argument for the equality of gay and lesbian citizens than the reality of our lives as responsible members of society. I am happy that Ken has come to a place where he can take a stand with integrity, and I welcome him as yet another conservative, common-sense voice to join with Log Cabin Republicans and all Americans in this important dialogue.

The process of coming out, and certainly coming out in the public eye, is never an easy one, but I am glad that Ken has decided to take this step and am glad that he is doing so on behalf of the fight for equality. As somebody who took my own journey and came out later in life, I have a great deal of respect for him doing this on his own terms. Ken joins a chorus that includes Laura Bush, Dick Cheney, Ted Olson, and countless others advocating for the American value of inclusion. This is not a time for playing politics; it is a time for us all to join together--Republicans and Democrats--to repeal the failed 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy, to pass workplace non-discrimination, and to recognize all committed relationships. The responsibility for making this happen lies with the Democratic leadership in Congress and in the White House who set the legislative agenda.
