Sometimes the biggest progress on LGBT equality comes in unexpected even paradoxical ways. Like this case in Philadelphia where one candidate is trying to “out” the other contender as actually being straight, not withstanding his claims that he really is sexually attracted to men as well as women. This all got started when candidate Gregg Kravitz brought a ‘girlfriend’ to an event after first professing to be gay. His opponent says he was just pretending to be gay and now bisexual to appeal to progressive and LGBT voters. Rachel Slajda has the story.
