Role models of greatness.

Here you will discover the back stories of kings, titans of industry, stellar athletes, giants of the entertainment field, scientists, politicians, artists and heroes – all of them gay or bisexual men. If their lives can serve as role models to young men who have been bullied or taught to think less of themselves for their sexual orientation, all the better. The sexual orientation of those featured here did not stand in the way of their achievements.

Sean Eldridge

According to the Federal Election Commission, 26-year-old Sean Eldridge, the political activist/investor who married Facebook co-founder mega-millionaire Chris Hughes last summer, has just filed papers in New York to run for U.S. Congress.

Eldridge, a staunch Democrat known in political circles for his advocacy of same-sex marriage and public financing of political campaigns, currently heads an investment firm in New York. He will be seeking a House seat in New York's 19th District, represented by Chris Gibson, a two-term Republican and former West Point professor who was reelected last November by just a 6-point margin. But because the 19th District went with Obama, it is one of the vulnerable districts Democratic strategists are gunning for in 2014, in hopes to reclaim the House. Heady stuff, no?
