Hate Crime Written and directed by Tommy Stovall Starring Seth Peterson and Chad Donella Image Entertainment
As a young Republican, Eric Johnson, 35, helped get Mark Foley elected to the Florida state senate. Now he’s the openly gay chief of staff for Democratic U.S. representative Robert Wexler of Florida and a star of the Sundance Channel’s docu-series The Hill. And he’s got a lot to say about the Foley scandal and gays in Congress.
Mel White, 66, has stepped down as head of Soulforce, the gay activist group he cofounded, to get back to the front lines against antigay Christian fundamentalists. His new book is Religion Gone Bad: The Hidden Dangers of the Christian Right (Tarcher/Penguin).
