"Interestingly, several closeted Republicans refused to oppose the bill-- Phil English (PA) and Jim McCrery (LA) actually voting with the Democrats and Denny Hastert abstaining. Dreier, the best known of the Republican closet queens in the House, voted against the Hate Crimes bill. The Republicans who voted yes were a strange combination of Northeast moderates (relative moderates) like Rodney Frelinghuysen, Michael Castle and Chris Shays and Republicans thought to be in serious jeopardy of losing their seats next year due to extreme wingnut voting records, like David Reichert (WA), Deborah Pryce (OH), Jon Porter (NV), Mark Kirk (IL), Mike Ferguson (NJ), etc." -- Howie Klein at Down With Tyranny!

Oh Joe! O leader of HRC and the LGBT community! There are only four words in LGBT. Is it too much to ask that you spell them all correctly?

Bisexual is not spelled with a hyphen
(bi-sexual) as you did in your article.

You can shorten it to "bi" but there is not now, nor has there ever been a hyphen in the word bisexual as it refers to the bisexual community or the people in it.
