Okay, maybe that’s overstating it. But he’s taken pretty much every anti-gay stance an elected official can: Ryan voted to constitutionally define marriage as between one man and one woman, and for an amendment banning same-sex nuptials. He also voted for banning gay and lesbians from adopting in the District of Columbia and against prohibiting job discrimination based on sexual orientation.
He got a zero score from the HRC!
You’d think with that kind of record Ryan’d give activist gays a wide berth. But at the end of the month, he’s packing his bags and heading to frisky San Francisco—a.k.a. homo central—to pass the
hate er, hat at a breakfast fundraiser. For $2,500 you can breath in the Congressman’s essence and for $5,000 you can even sit at his table.
Where is this nosh taking place? At Gap headquarters on Folsom Street! Prosperity Action PAC, Ryan’s little cash cow, is hosting the event at the retail giant’s “view room” on May 24 at 8am. (Too early for our tired asses.)
We’re disappointed to think that the company we’ve always relied on for sensible basics is tied in some way to a major gay hater and the architect of the GOP’s slash-and-burn budget. It’s enough to make us want to shop at Zara.
Kristin Hueter, who is organizing the fundraiser, told Queerty that Gap Inc. is just renting out the room and isn’t involved in sponsoring the event. “Not at all, no. I mean, we’re paying for the space like anyone else,” she said.
We’re still not happy, but we guess this means we can continue stocking up on skinny-fit jeans. Or does it? Tell us in the comments section!
