Frank Talks.

New Jersey-born homo-politico Barney Frank offers favorite places in DC. He also offers some frank talk on the GOP’s gay ways: “There’s a very large gay staff presence on Capitol Hill. And it’s larger than people would think on the Republican side. But most of them have to be closeted. Not necessarily in their offices — they’ll say, “Oh, my boss knows and they’re very proud.” But the boss doesn’t want anybody in the district to know.” [PlanetOut]
