Onetime presidential candidate Alan Keyes created a stir last year with remarks on homosexuality, calling it "selfish hedonism." And he criticized Vice President Dick Cheney's gay daughter. Monday, Keyes' own daughter appeared at a gay rights rally in Maryland. Maya Marcel-Keyes is 19. She said that she's gay and liberal. And she urged people to support gay and lesbian young people who are estranged from their families.
