Former antigay Rep. Aaron Schock has popped up again shirtless with a gay companion, this time on a beach in Malibu.
The reveal came courtesy of Jeremy Cormier, a New York-based Instagrammer whose feed consists mostly of shirtless pictures in various scenic locales. Cormier posted the pic, which he also tagged to Schock’s own Instagram.
We have to wonder if Cromier knows about Schock’s long anti-gay record. Schock was a reliable antigay vote while serving as U.S. Representative for Illinois’s 18th congressional district from 2009 until 2015. To add insult to injury, Schock has been living a seemingly out-gay life, all while refusing to address the damage he’s inflicted on the LGBTQ community.
Among his political positions, he voted against adding ‘sexual orientation, gender identity, gender and disability’ to the federal hate crime protection groups, against the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ and for the Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as between a man and a woman.
His politics at one time earned him a 0 percent approval rating from the Human Rights Campaign for his opposition to LGBTQ equality.
For Cromier’s sake, we hope he’s just ignorant of the company he’s keeping. And since his social media presence appears as well-maintained as his six-pack, he may want to rethink how his latest share is going to play with other queer Instagram users.
