R. Rados writes at Poletical in this article from 2012:
It turns out that there are openly gay conservatives. We just don’t hear much about them because the media tends to deliberately avoid the issue.
There are three truths that Canadians need to accept. One, the Canadian media doesn’t avoid covering the sexuality of prominent conservatives and Conservatives to hide their hypocrisy – the Canadian media avoids such coverage to protect the liberal perception that all conservatives are homophobic. Two, wanting a smaller government, more economic freedom, and stronger social values is not exclusive to heterosexuals. Three, balanced and unbiased reporting died decades ago.
