The Lesbian Past of a Candidate's Wife

New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio (D), "an all-but-officially announced mayoral hopeful, has prominently featured his wife Chirlane McCray in his campaign literature and on his web site" but "one aspect of her life has thus far remained out of the public eye," Politicker reports.

"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."
