Sean Bugg, a Bilerico-DC contributor, has an wonderful interview with the amazing Kerry Eleveld in Metro Weekly. Kerry is the Washington correspondent for The Advocate. Her weekly column View to Washington is indispensable reading for anyone wanting to know what's really happening in DC on LGBT issues.

Kerry on her unique role among the Washington media:

And even when they do, the need for a GLBT-specific approach remains. ''Everyone will throw in a gay question every now and again in an interview, but what mainstream organization would ever do an interview with a politician and ask four or five gay questions in a row? That doesn't happen.''

Here's Kerry in action discussing the future of LGBT rights with MSNBC's Carlos Watson:
