'Wasn't He Gay?': A Revealing Question About Mister Rogers�|�Michael G. Long:
At last, perhaps we should turn the camera lens toward
ourselves and assure Fred Rogers that we like him just as he was: the
opposite of machismo, a loving husband and father, a close friend and
employer of gays, a man who grew to support at least one friend's desire
for an openly gay relationship and, above all else, a compassionate
human being who assured each of us that, no matter who we are or what we
do, we are always and everywhere lovable and capable of loving...
Just as they are.
