The Log Cabin Republicans announced today that that Gregory T. Angelo has been named interim director of the organization, as R. Clarke Cooper steps down from the post at the end of the year.

The director of the Log Cabin Republicans of New York State since 2009, Angelo believes “2013 could mark a turning point in the fight for equal rights for all.” He adds that, “it has never been more critical to advocate for equality to Republicans, as Republicans.”

His tenure, which officially starts January 2, comes at something of a turning point for the LCR, who have been taking a harder line on gay issues: Yesterday the group took out a full-page ad in the New York Times criticizing possible Defense Secretary appointee Chuck Hagel for homophobic comments he made some years back.
