“Outrage” Documentary Outs Allegedly Gay Conservatives

“Capitol Hill is packed with gay staffers,” says the narrator of “Outrage,” a documentary by filmmaker Kirby Dick that seeks to expose closeted gay conservatives who publicly oppose gay rights. The film features several men discussing their relationships with various politicians, including former New York City Mayor Ed Koch, Florida Governor Charlie Crist, and former Senator Larry Craig.
