The Log Cabin Republicans are gearing up for their annual convention in San Diego this weekend, when luminaries like Arnold Schwarzenegger will address the gay GOPpers. One of the group’s members, Kevin Norte, offered this reflection, which we think is fairly valid: “The gay and lesbian community is more accepting of, lately, the leather community than it is the Republican community. West Hollywood will put Mr. Leather as their grand marshal of the parade, but would they ever put a Republican? The answer is Never! And that’s a boundary that has to be broken down someday.” There’s certainly quite a talent pool to choice from – we think Mark Foley would make a great grand marshall. Just make sure there are no teenagers around. [KPBS]
Hmmm. I think the case can be made that gay Republicans are simply sadomasochists without being encased in dead cow; though some, of course, are often both.
Towleroad today quotes Chief Log Head Patrick Sammon as saying they are likely to endorse McShame because, â€œWe know he’s someone who’s an inclusive Republican who understands the party needs to get back to its core principles and we are excited about the campaign ahead.”
Will someone please remind Reich Commandant Sammon that McCain supported his state’s constitutional amendment banning marriage equality. “I wholeheartedly support the Protect Marriage Arizona Amendment and I hope that the voters in Arizona choose to support it as well.” “At the meeting Sen. McCain presented a petition to PMA chair Lynn Stanley with his signature and the signatures of others. Sen. McCain then signed the back of the petition as a petition circulator.”
And that he had to have “LGBT” defined for him? That he admitted to having no idea if condoms helped prevent HIV transmission.
