They know about each other and the wife likes me and is ok with it, but, you know if it hit the press, that no one would care about that. They'd just call me a slut and a whore and it would be over.
And that's the way it used to be for people who were gay in politics. It took years of pretty much exactly what you said (as well as marches, etc) for that to change, but it DID, and things aren't going to get any better for us until we do the same.
