Brokeback Hill – By Kevin Sites

Washington – Members of the 110th Congress consider yourselves warned: Mike Rogers is making his list.

Rogers is a muckraking gay blogger who uses his insider’s knowledge of Washington politics and broad blanket of contacts to “out” gay politicos ? but only, he says, if they are undermining gay rights. Critics call his tactics divisive and politically motivated.

Rogers, a longtime gay activist, started in 2004, using it to yank out of the closet at least two dozen high-ranking political figures, including senators, congressmen and Bush administration officials.

He’s outed so many closeted gay politicos, he’s starting to make Capitol Hill look like Brokeback Mountain. All of them, he says, use their positions to actively oppose the equal rights of gay citizens while at the same time, secretly live a gay life.
