Rep. Zach Wyatt calls proposed legislation 'horrible' amd says 'I will not lie to myself anymore about my own sexuality'

Rep. Zach Wyatt went one step further than speaking out against Missouri's proposed 'Don't Say Gay' bill in a speech before his colleagues this week - he came out as gay himself.

'I'm not the first or the last Republican to come out,' Wyatt said. 'I've just gotten tired of the bigotry being shown from both sides of the aisle on gay issues. Being gay has never been a Republican or Democratic issue and it should never be.'
