Connecticut Politico Jason Bartlett Comes Out

Tired of speculation about his private life, Connecticut politician Jason Bartlett announced his gay ways today: “For me the decision came down to why not now. To me this is about having a conversation with my larger family – the people of Greater Danbury who voted for me… I’ve always considered my life private. But at the same time we are also living in a digital age and I’m in the public eye. People are always interested in you and your family.” And now he’ll be more well-known than before, so even more people will be interested! [News Times]

    As the partner of the recently deceased former state senator, Chuck Allen, III of NewHaven, Ct. also an African American politician in the state, I am proud and humbled by Jason Bartlett’s example! You have opened doors not only for LGBT people who want to pursue public service, but you have opened the doors of people’s minds nationally. Thank you for courage.
