(disclosure, I am gay, still like OSC's work. His Magic Street, a retelling of A Midsummer Night's Dream, is spectacular.)
Well, to some extent, we all are proagandists in the sense that we tend to argue for the positions we believe in. That being said, he does not overtly push his social and political positions in his fiction so with respect to his fiction, he is not really acting as a propagandist.
