Rupert Boneham is for Marriage Equality in Indiana


I'd like to make a correction on a post by Brandon over the weekend in which he discussed the situation in Indiana in which Republicans have removed a constitutional amendment against same-sex marriage as part of the party platform.

In the post, Brandon claimed that Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Rupert Boneham did not mention marriage equality on his website. As many of you noted, and we have in the past on Towleroad, Boneham is a marriage equality supporter and an LGBT ally. While it's not listed on Boneham's 'issues' page, there is a link on the front page of his site to a video (which we posted when he originally made it) advocating for marriage equality.

Boneham also handed out the above flyer at Spencer Pride, Indy Pride and at the upcoming OUTfest, and has been flaunting a Pride pic all month as his campaign page's profile photo.

    I live in Indiana and have never been more discouraged about LGBT issues. Dem and GOP senate and gov candidates against marriage equality. At least they have stopped the talk about an ammendment to the state constitution. the teabagger running for senate is a complete ass#$%e and wears a tie that resembles the confederate flag. The teabagger gove candidate is anti gay, union and immigrant, but swear they are good “christians” – ready to cram their religion down everyone’s throat. The candidate above has as much chance o0f becoming gov as I do of becomming pope

    One day equality-minded politicians won’t have to align themselves with the deeply solipsistic libertarian party in order to run for office. I appreciate this candidate’s suppor, but the libertarian approach is just a little too selfish and bratty to be a viable political choice.

    Thanks for the update, Andy. I received one of the above flyers last weekend at Indy Pride from a very tall and large man in a Hawaiian shirt who told me “if you don’t vote for Rupert, you’re voting against marriage equality”. It was an interesting sales pitch, but it did draw my attention to him if only for a moment.
