NYC mayoral candidate’s wife is an exlesbian
Citing what “all the major mental health organizations” say is “dangerous and unhealthy”, gay activists steadfastly deny that people can change from homosexuality. In recent days gays and their allies have launched several legal attacks against former homosexuals, sexual orientation change counselors and by extension faith based ministries who advocate the message of change. But will a high profile New York social figure now become their target after revelations that she is an exlesbian? The wife of New York City mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio (D) is an exlesbian and living in a very healthy and balanced nonhomosexual marriage for almost 22 years, according to a new article published by Politico.
Chirlane McCray used to openly identify as a long term relationship lesbian. McCray wrote about her life in Essence magazine. But things have apparently changed, 180 style.
Prior to meeting Mr. de Blasio, Ms. McCray identified as a lesbian and had several long-term relationships with other women. In a seven-page essay she wrote for the September 1979 issue of Essence magazine entitled “I am a Lesbian” she frankly discussed her sexuality and expressed gratitude that she came to terms with her preference for women before marrying a man.
“I survived the tears, the isolation and the feeling that something was terribly wrong with me for loving another woman” Ms. McCray wrote. “Coming to terms with my life as a lesbian has been easier for me than it has been for many. Since I don’t look or dress like the typical bulldagger, I have a choice as to whether my sexual preference is known.”
She added, “I have also been fortunate because I discovered my preference for women early, before getting locked into a traditional marriage and having children.”
McCray described to Fox News in NY her transition from a young lesbian activist to a married mom of two: “The story is that I’m married and I have two children, and that sexuality, I think, is just a very fluid thing, and it’s personal.”
