Gay Republicans Attempt To Educate GOP

By Charlotte Robinson, August 27, 2012
Hurricane Isaac is slowing down the Republican National Convention. Word is that they will officially open the convention & then call a recess delaying the speakers until tomorrow shortening many of the activities. Being from Massachusetts we hope that the country will soon wake-up to the false promises of Mitt Romney as we did. Especially the gay Republicans which still appears to the majority of our LGBT community as an oxymoron that we can not quite digest. According to the convention schedule of the Log Cabin Republicans today’s highlight is "Republicans Out to Win" with the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund with Out & Proud Republicans running for office at every level. They’ve scheduled a gathering at Oystercatchers at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, 2900 Bayport Drive with special guests former Congressman Jim Kolbe from 3P-5P. Log Cabin have scheduled other activities throughout the convention addressing our LGBT issues. More polls show that the majority of voters ages 18 to 29 are against the GOP stance on gay marriage & abortion rights. To add to that the GOP image only makes it harder for Republicans to gain credibility with many young Americans who hold an unfavorable opinion of the party. Peter Levine, director of the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning & Engagement at Tufts University said, “Republicans should be worried about their long-term brand on these issues. The younger generation is the most diverse in American history & thinks of itself as very tolerant & pro-diversity. On top of that, you get the social issues, with the gay-related issues being the best example. It fits into a broader narrative that [Republicans] are basically the party of the older, white, straight people." So listen up Republicans. Either evolve on LGBT equality or be left behind. Updates to Come…:)
