Check out my story on how LGBT conservatives and progressives found common ground at Politicon

Posted a link to this story in my Politicon round-up last night but wanted to give it more attention with it’s own post!

Here is my report from The “LGBTQ in the 21st Century” panel facilitated by Melissa Goodman of the ACLU of Southern California.

On the panel were Alex Mohajer, co-founder of the progressive advocacy organization Bros4America, singer-turned political activist Clay Aiken, Fox News contributor Guy Benson (pictured above with Aiken), the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Terra Russell Slavin, and Log Cabin Republicans of California – Los Angeles President Matthew Craffey.

One Remark

    K. Martinez says:

    I’ll give you an A for effort, Greg. But that’s about it.

    Already from your article, I’m turned off by the LGBT Republicans.

    “One actual sign of progress is that gay people and LGBTQ people don’t have to be single issue voters,” said Benson, an openly gay Republican

    Hey, Benson. I’m not a single issue voter. There are multiple issues I disagree on with the Republican Party. It isn’t just being about being gay that I hold my political views. Yes, we all have our differences, but supporting a party that oppresses not only LGBT, but other marginalized groups is where we part. There is just too much negative about the Republicans that I don’t like on a lot of issues.

    And then Benson says, “I would not have the freedom to think about one day proposing to my boyfriend or living a normal life as a gay man in America without the very hard work of lots of people who would never agree with my politics–gay rights activists on the left,” he said.

    Yep! Because the Republican Party has been working so hard to make sure you cant!

    The Log Cabin Republicans have existed since 1977. What progress have they made within the Republican Party in 40 years towards LGBT rights? The Republican Party is more anti-gay than ever. The Log Cabin Republicans are ineffective and an utter failure in my opinion.
