Is Rick Perry gay?Around the Nation, This Week Monday, January 9th, 2012
AUSTIN, Texas – Speculation about Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s sexual habits has been common in Austin for years; and now his presidential run have brought them out of the woodwork once again. Perry has a long history of gay bashing from hosting anti-gay prayer rallies to joining forces with the controversial American Family Association and, most recently, running a TV ad in Iowa that complains “gays can serve openly in the military.”
Now, national reporter and former Texas state Rep. Glen Maxey has released a book narrating his exploration into Gov. Rick Perry’s past physical and emotional relationships. The book, Head Figure Head: The Search for the Hidden Life of Rick Perry is currently the best selling book in Amazon.com’s gay and lesbian nonfiction category.
Maxey was the first openly gay state representative in the history of Texas. June 23, a national reporter happened to call Maxey to ask about past rumors of past homosexual relationships. Curious, Maxey sent messages to several long-time LGBT insiders and Texas politicos. Within hours he received independent stories about an alleged gay hustler who supposedly had had a relationship with Perry.
That began an all-consuming five month investigation by Maxey into rumors and stories about Perry’s alleged past homosexual relationships.
The book chronicles that exhaustive investigation and Maxey’s work with the national political reporter to try to learn the truth.
Maxey has worked in Texas politics and with Texas politicians his entire adult life. Since 1985, when Rick Perry arrived in Austin, Maxey has been an aide to a state senator and the executive director and lobbyist for the Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas and a state representative for 12 years. He has known Perry as a legislator, agriculture commissioner, lieutenant governor and governor.
The book is currently on sale on Amazon.com for media, Texans and anyone else interested to learn the results of Maxey’s investigation. The narrative provides details culled from thousands of emails, interviews and in-person meetings with individuals claiming to have slept with Gov. Rick Perry.

Glen Maxey stated, “Did Rick Perry have sex with men? Read this book and decide for yourself.”
