Everyone please welcome Chris Douglas back to the blog after a brief hiatus. Chris is not only a long time activist, having served as steering committee member, founder, or board member of numerous LGBT organizations, but he is that rare breed... openly gay, but retaining ties to his Republican roots. With all of the Democratic contributors we have on the blog, Chris's voice will help to moderate the blog and bring us an often overlooked voice in our community. Of course, his posts (as with all other contributors) do not represent the views of any organization he might be involved in. bilerico.com is about personal voices and attempting to show all sides of the Hoosier LGBT community. Let's give Chris a great big bilerico "welcome back!" Leave a comment and say hello!
