With only weeks to go before the premiere of Director Kirby Dick's new documentary on the outing of gay and lesbian politicians, rumors have surfaced that the film outs Florida Republican Governor Charlie Crist.

Prominent blogger Mike Rogers, who appears in the film, posted the news Monday on his blog, BlogActive.com, a website dedicated to the outing of gay politicians unfriendly to gay and lesbian rights.

“My numerous sources tell me that the movie will out Charlie Crist,” Rogers posted.

Outrage looks at the lives of gay politicians who remain deep in the closet and actively support an anti-gay agenda and the damage they have inflicted on the gay and lesbian community.

Rumors that Crist is gay have long swirled in gay political circles. Crist might have hoped his 2008 marriage to Carole Rome would have put those rumors to bed. Instead, the gossip turned cynical as muckrakers dismissed the marriage as a sham and little less than a conservative image boost taken on to help secure a spot on the 2008 Republican presidential ticket.

The film includes interviews with prominent members of the gay community, including Congressman Barney Frank, former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey, gay rights activists Larry Kramer, and radio personality Michelangelo Signorile.

Producers of the film call it: “[A] searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians who actively campaign against the LGBT community they covertly belong to. Boldly revealing the hidden lives of some of the United States' most powerful policymakers, Outrage takes a comprehensive look at the harm they've inflicted [by] keeping their secrets.”

Outrage premieres May 1 at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
