The warnings came from the bas-fond of some right. Paulo Rangel had to be careful, because everything would be used if he dreamed of leading a PSD in ruins. Rangel anticipated the more direct attack and clarified, in an interview with (another) Daniel Oliveira, that he is a homosexual. They will say it is a non-issue and it was excellent that it was not. But it’s a matter, as seen by this need for anticipation or by the insinuations that Santana Lopes made about Sócrates, in 2005. When Rangel said that neither now nor in the 1980s is the orientation of a politician relevant to society, he ends up despising the struggle that has been made in these decades. I may be wrong, but the uncomplex way in which Adolfo Mesquita Nunes lives with what he is has been one of the obstacles to his rise in the CDS. Rangel’s interview was praised for its courage, assuming it was needed. But some, especially on the left, sought a supposed contradiction with their positions on LGBT rights. It would be gay self-hating.
