Should Gay Public Figures Be Forced to Come Out?

The documentary Outrage premieres this week at the Tribeca Film Festival. The premise: a former Clinton White House aide outs closeted gay politicians.

Those in political circles typically follow the Barney Frank Rule named after the openly gay congressmen. The rule is: only out homosexual politicians actively working against the greater interests of the LGBT community.

Outrage claims to follow such a rule, when it outs politicians like Florida governor Charlie Crist, pictured here at his wedding last year. He denies being homosexual.

Whether they are politicians, actors, or musicians, there are many people in the public's eye that deny rumors of being gay. Do you think the media should try to nudge them out of the closet?
