GOProud founder Jimmy LaSalvia announced that he’d left the Republican party because he could no longer stand “the tolerance of bigotry in the GOP.”

With his departure, he became only the most recent–some might say belated–defector from a party that has become known for the racism, homophobia, and transphobia of its members.

Even so, there are still gays who proudly belong to the Republican party.

Though freedom to choose political affiliation is one of the things that makes this country great, LGBT people who align themselves with the GOP are understandably met with the side-eye from fellow gays.

So we pose the query to you, Queerty readers: Is It Possible To Be Gay & Proud In Today’s Antigay GOP?
