Say what you want about gay Republicans — god knows we do — but they really do have it tough. On the one hand, they’re part of a party that openly and sometimes zealously denies them their civil rights. On the other hand, the gay community would disown them if it could.
Buzzfeed crashed the Party’s premier partay, Homocon, during the Republican National Convention and talked to some of these political unicorns about what makes them tick. There seems to be a lot of talk about “limited government” so we’re assuming the irony of their party sticking its nose into their bedrooms is lost on them. But there we go again, proppin’ up a big ole sarcastic tent to throw shade all over their good intentions.
