Eh, I hate to have a headline with my name in it. So I just cut/pasted the one from PolicyMic that wrote the article about me today.
Bruce Carroll has had quite the successful career, especially for someone who is still in his mid 40’s. Carroll was elected as the youngest borough councilman in the state of Pennsylvania at age 21 back in 1992. Since then, it’s only been an upward spiral. After working for 15 years in government relations in the biotech industury and health care policy, he went on to become an incredibly successful blogger, with over 100,000 people visiting his site each month.
Today, he is the president and Founder of Patriot Consulting, an agency that was created to help small businesses and organizations with growing concerns about the impact of government regulations on their day-to-day operations.
There is however, a twist. Carroll is currently on the board of directors for GOProud, which today is the one of the leading advocacy groups for gay and straight conservatives in America. When coupled with his work at his blog, GayPatriot, Carroll has had an incredible impact when it comes to breaking down the stereotypes of what it means to be gay in America.
For many millennials, the concept of a gay, conservative activist probably sounds like something out of a science-fiction movie. Thankfully for those individuals and others, I was lucky enough to get a few minutes to ask Carroll some questions that I feel will shed some light on what it means to be a gay conservative in America.
For the record, that wasn’t the photo I gave them… and yes, it is about 5 years old. Oh, and I hate all photos taken of me. I look better in three dimensions. LOL
