Interim Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro’s had this to say:
“… If I were — and please don’t clap your hands and I am going to say this with all of my heart — if I were gay I’d take ownership of it with pride and shout it to the four winds and I would have no problem loving whomever I had to love with my heart. Because the worst homophobe is one who is gay and discriminates against his own. It’s similar to a foreman in a slave-owner’s farm. A black traitor who whips an African man’s back. That’s the worst homophobe: He who denies his identity and discriminates against his equals. …”
This assessment sounds about right to me.
