Roy Ashburn Finds His Soulmate: Ken Mehlman

I’m pleased for him because knowing what I’ve been through in trying to keep a secret for so many years and in trying to hide my secret, doing things that were hurtful to gay people, coming to the realization that you can actually admit who you truly are, and to stop the hiding and the actions around that which are hurtful … I mean that’s a big breakthrough and I’m happy for him. … I would argue that the Republican party, because of the principles underlying Republicanism, really is the party that should be championing equal rights for gay people, for all people. For me this is very clear.
