OPENLY HOMOSEXUAL POLITICIANS, AND OTHERS IN A POSITION OF AUTHORITY (THOSE WE CAN COUNT ON)
Please keep in mind that not all openly homosexual/bisexual elected people are 100% for equal homosexual civil rights. We have uncle toms just like other minority groups. Most of them do not show their true colors until they reach the state legislature. I myself believe that 90% of all openly homosexual/bisexual elected people are potential uncle toms. This listing has the names of the ones we can count on, but since most have not reached the state legislature, here is a question to ask them to be sure if you can count on them. Do you think that gays and lesbians should be imprisoned for having or seeking consensual sex regardless of the age of the partner or the location they have sex? If they say yes or do not answer, they are an uncle tom.

The links below will take you to other web sites. They are not part of the Gay Rights Info web site, you will need to use your browser back button to return to this page. These links will take you to the most informative sites I could find on each of these people. Some of the links will not have much information, but they will serve to let you know that the member is still in office. If there is no web link, I am unable to confirm the person is still in office or it may be a newly elected member with no web site yet.
