Where To Meet Gay GOPers At The Republican National Convention

Looking for some sexy pillow talk about fiscal responsibility, the Second Amendment and drilling for oil in national parks? Well, look no further: we have the full list of Log Cabin Republican hangouts at the upcoming convention in Tampa.

Start the week off right at the LCR Welcome Reception at the Rusty Pelican on Sunday, August 26 at 5pm. Yelp assigns the Rusty Pelican three whole dollar signs, so you know it’s a classy joint for high-rollers. Go ahead an splurge—you’ve earned it by the sweat of your brow. (Either that, or you just built your empire by availing yourself of government aid, like Romney’s pal in New Hampshire.)

On Monday, the Log Cabin folks move over to Oystercatchers, which doesn’t sound at all suggestive. Another three-dollar-sign joint, its lobster macaroni and cheese actually sounds legitimately tasty. And it’s at a Hyatt, which is convenient if you want to slip off for a little tryst in a hotel room with a Craigslist trick like Republican Indiana legislator Phillip Hinkle.

How will they ever top the glamour of Oystercatchers? Why, at the Thursday “Celebrating Congressional Allies” event, of course. On the agenda is “meeting our allies,” which means “pro-equality Republicans.” Yes, they exist. Don’t forget, Florida is home to Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the only Republican to sponsor the repeal of DOMA! So that’s a start.

      You mean LRC has not been banned yet, and I thought this event had at least the same traction as CPAC.

      I really do not get these self-hating gay people that support the NATIONAL Republican Party. At the local level it is mostly a toss up in some areas.

      You don’t need to look up the Log Cabiners to get lucky at the Republican Convention. The last one was in St. Paul. The local Craigslist and other sites exploded with ads containing the words “DL, down low, discreet, closeted, married, and MWM” all of whom could host in hotels.

      As a GOProuder, I can honestly state that when we gather, it’s not for illicit sexual trysts (as you guys apparently love to fantasize about), it’s for the purpose of discussing the abysmal direction the Democrats have taken our country. So, unless or until you actually attend a GOProud meeting, you shouldn’t presume to “know” anything about us. But I must admit, it’s very funny (and a little bizarre) how you libs try projecting your slutty behavior onto others by perusing Craigslist for conservative homosexuals. Funny indeed.

      @Red State:

      Maybe if all you homocons weren’t getting got screwing in toilets, and raping sleeping men, we wouldn’t see you as depraved, and grotesque.

      @Red State: yeah like republican queers are the paragon on virtue.

      Any sentence that has the word YOU followed by the name of a group is clearly filled with contempt, prejudice and hate. You blacks, you gays, you latinos, you Libs.

      I have an acquaintance (friend of another family member) who is a LCR/GoP type.
      Says he can’t stand “faggots” and “queens” and complains that gay men are fucked up. Tells me that is life is more than just about being gay. (FYI…he has never has a long term partner and is now pushing 50).

      This from a man who spends all his time lusting after “straight acting” men and from a man who spent WAY too much time paying attention to the teenage boys at a big family party we both attended.

      @Mr. Enemabag Jones: Someone who refers to himself as an “enemabag” is calling ME depraved and grotesque? That is sweeeeeeet. By the way, your grammar is as ridiculous as your false accusations: “Weren’t getting got screwing” makes no sense whatsoever, not to me, and not to anyone else, not even in the ghetto. Did you think your nasty comment would make you come across as superior or intelligent? Try, try again.

      Ahh, more pathetic comments from clueless bleeding heart liberals who would rather push their selfish, self absorbed agenda than have the country move in a positive direction. Nobama is leading you right over the edge of the cliff and you are so in love with him that you are unable to think for yourselves. So lame!

      What’s more absurd? A gay Republican or a gay Democrat?

      The 2party system = war, poverty, debt, taking away civil liberties, change party in charge, repeat.

      Voting for the 2party system is a wasted vote. Unless US now having the highest rate of poverty ever is not enough for ya’ll.

      Both the Republican and Democrat parties should be charged with crimes against humanity.

      @Red State: Us “libs” don’t have to meet for clandestine meetings in the bathroom of the local 7-11 for hookups…we’re out and we’re proud. You closeted Republican homos keep Craigs list in business. A gay Republican. You might as well be a black KKK wizard.

      Pathetic. Go find a white or black party somewhere, spray on some body glitter, and do what you do best. The rest of the educated, informed world has work to do. God Bless Mitt Romney and President Bush. At least they have a set of balls unlike the current occupant of the White House. Sarah Jessica Parker has a bigger set!

      @GOProudest Good luck winning elections?? Does your comment indicate you vote for a winner more than by principle? If an anti-LGBT ballot measure gets on the ballot in a red state do you just give up?

      @Clockwork Thanks.

      The 2party system = perpetual war, poverty & the erosion of civil liberties. Keep voting for the same parties over and over while expecting different results and see where that gets you.

      @Red State, GOP Proudest, Proud gay Republican and all my fellow Republicans: Love all your comments, but I learned long ago that many gay Dems are so narrow-minded, I wouldn’t waste my time responding. You have all done us proud….but I wouldnt waste my time dealing with their alleged superiority…not to mention their arrogance.

      @Stocker: I do not expect to convince any left wing nutters out here, but I believe anyone with an open mind who is willing to use their brain would benefit from seeing our perspective.

      Gay left thinks they have the monopoly on speaking for gay community. We are here to tell everyone that this is not the case and there are many gay people who refuse to be slaves on Dem plantation.

      We are here, we are GOP Queer, get used to us, left wing tools!

      Gay Republicans, libertarians, tea baggers, etc. sure are an odd bunch. They have many interesting qualities, but those qualities do not include being kind, likeable, or socialized. I speak from personal observation.
