Doogie Howser is Gay

There is a lot of talk about the election on Tuesday and the Constitutional Convention on Thursday. I want to break things up a bit with some fun news.

Doogie Howser officially came out today! Actually, the actor that played Doogie Howser, Neil Patrick Harris, is gay. He decided to come out after his publicist issued a release denying that Harris was gay.

Harris said, "I am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest".

Harris is still on TV, starring in a show called, "How I Met Your Mother."

Now back to the election! Are you volunteering for a campaign this weekend? Are you helping out a pro-equality candidate on Election Day before or after work? I sure hope so!

The Constitutional Convention is only two days after the election. Call your legislators today. I have heard from a few representatives that the anti-gay calls are far more than the pro-gay calls. Even if your reps are good on LGBT rights, give them a call and thank them today.

Be sure to show up at the State House on Thursday, November 9th. Come early in the day or anytime you can make it. We need to show legislators that we will not sit by quietly and watch them strip our rights away. Come by and make some noise!

Hey Chris, we need some linkage to the story =p

I just googled it and I didn't find anything about him coming out. Wierd that his publicist would cover it up one day, then he'd come out practically the next... maybe she didn't know? lol

Regardless, it's pretty cool. More and more "celebrities" are starting to come out - and their ratings hasn't suffered yet... so let's hope that gets more to come out as well.

He was closeted to the mainstream. It has been known in the gay community for a while though. It is great to see him finally officially publicly come out of the closet.
