Republican

Brent Randall lost his race for a seat on the city council in Goshen, Indiana.

The Republican candidate Brent Randall has been outed during the campaign when it revealed that he has a profile on a site for gay dating that he keeps active.

Last month little bit after Randall went on the record against amending the city’s civil rights ordinance to include sexual orientation and gender identity, he gotouted.

Randall, 53, has admitted  that he has a profile on the site but said he does not consider himself bisexual or even gay.

Randall’s views on a hypothetical change stayed the same to the civil rights ordinance saying he believes ‘in my heart of hearts that our gay and lesbian communities are protected currently under the law.’

‘I don’t know why they feel they need special protections when there are other categories that might need protections,’ he said. ‘My little experimentation over the last six years hasn’t changed my view on that.

In 2009 Brent Randall got divorced ,after being in marriage with a woman for 22 years and he claimed he has not met anyone on the profile.

Democrat Adam Schart and Brent Randall were both running for office for the first time.Brent Randall lost to Adam Schart 1,075 votes to 560.

Caitlyn Jenner Clarifies Stance on Gay Marriage: “Everyone Should Be Able to Marry”

Caitlyn

Does Caitlyn Jenner finally support gay marriage? After sounding like she was against the idea on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ Cait took to her blog to say that everyone should be able to marry the ‘person they love.’

Jenner, who considers herself a Republican, was criticized for the way she phrased her support for gay marriage on Ellen, which some detractors viewed as reluctant.

“I mean, I like tradition and it’s always been between a man and a woman and I’m thinking I don’t quite get it,” Jenner said on the show. “But as time goes on, like a lot of people on this issue, I’ve really changed thinking here to, ‘I don’t ever want to stand in front of anybody’s happiness. That’s not my job. OK. If that word marriage is really, really that important to you I can go with it.’ ”

There seemed to be tension on the set when DeGeneres, who is married to actress Portia de Rossi, responded that the former Olympian still did not seem “on board with it.”“She still has a judgment about gay marriage,” DeGeneres told Stern. “And I said, ‘You’re wanting people to understand and accept you…and you still have a judgment about gay people and marriage.’ “

An open dialogue was set to happen between Sir Elton John and Vladimir Putin to discuss LGBT rights.

Despite his large fallowing in Russia, Sir Elton John fell victim to a hoax earlier this year after he asked Putin to meet.

After the call from fake Putin, the real Putin agreed to a meeting with Sir Elton John.

Sir Elton said: “I’ve talked to him on the telephone – we’re trying to arrange a date when I can go to Moscow and talk to him.”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin had to go above and beyond to convince Sir Elton that the real Putin did want to talk,  after the hoax call.

He said: “At first [Sir Elton John] hesitated.

“We decided to ask Russian Ambassador to London Alexander Yakovenko to get in touch with the musician and tell him about the phone call.

“In the beginning, Yakovenko had certain problems to explain to the musician that he was really the Russian ambassador and that the real president of Russia wanted to talk to him.”

Sir Elton added: “I feel very honoured that he wants to see me and he’s put the olive branch out and it’s essential that I do go over there and just put my foot in the water and see what we can do change the situation for LGBT people in Russia.

“Even though the Russians say it’s great it is very very, it’s not great at all. But you know, as I said, I want to try and knock the wall down a little bit, so I will be trying to go and see him.

“He was very pleasant on the phone, he apologised for the fake interview I did. He was very genial and I was very very impressed.”
