Alan Keyes' Daughter Coming Out

(CBS) The 19-year-old daughter of Alan Keyes has a Valentine for the anti-gay rights conservative pundit and frequent Republican candidate.

 

Maya Marcel-Keyes will be making her first public appearance as a gay activist at a Valentine Day's rally in front of the Maryland State House, says Dan Furmansky, the leader of Equality Maryland, a gay rights group.

 

Last summer her father, a conservative pundit and frequent Republican candidate, caused a stir during the Republican convention by labeling Vice President Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter a sinner and calling homosexuality "selfish hedonism."

 

"It was kind of strange that he said it like a hypothetical," she told the Washington Post. "It was really kind of unpleasant."

 

Marcel-Keyes told the Post her parents have thrown her out of the house, stopped speaking to her and refuse to pay for college because she is gay. She said she loves her parents.

 

Keyes' Web site says he is against "the homosexual rights agenda, including same-sex marriage."

 

Marcel-Keyes grew up in Darnestown, Md., attended a conservative Catholic school for girls in McLean, Va., spent a year in the south of India advocating tribal rights, and plans to attend Brown University this fall, according to an Equality Maryland press release.

 

Furmansky told CBSNews.com that Marcel-Keyes would not be speaking to the media ahead of Monday's rally, and probably not afterward, either.

 

Bloggers have identified her Web site as http://www.xanga.com/home.aspx?user=Xmisled0youthX. The author of the blog says it is public and she has nothing to hide.

How can any parent every treat their child like this because they are politically inconvenient.

Not all parents are created equally. At least Cheney isn't like this to his child. I can't imagine just throwing your child out like that, then again, she's over 18 so she should be able to be self-sufficient anyway.

I have pretty conservative parents, but they would NEVER do ANYTHING like this if one of their kids told them they were gay.

 

That's just awful.... :(

now, why would they go out of their way to inform you of that?

They never have, it's just common sense. Nobody in their right mind just kicks somebody out forever over something like sexual preference.

Well first is that is the homosexuality the only reason she was kicked out? We obviously dont know. Second, if that was the reason I'm glad keyes kicked her out for his own sake. Had he not then everyone would call him a hypocrit. Its a damned if you do and damned if you dont moment.

Certainly better to be called a hypocrite than disown one's own child. Personally I think the fact that he puts political consistency over his own child is plain and simple immoral.

I prefer to just stay outside and watch the tents detoriorate.

 

My parents are not like that... the Keyes' are not typical in their actions.
