    The Log Cabin Republicans of California, a gay GOP organization, has endorsed a number of Inland candidates in the June primary. The group said it didn't focus on "gay issues" in making its decisions because gays and lesbians already have many rights in California. Instead, the group looked at candidates' positions on issues such as lower taxes and public safety, said James Vaughn, the Log Cabin Republicans' state director. "The gay wars are over. We've moved on," Vaughn said. "We want to support Republicans who want to win elections, not fight losing battles." The group took neutral positions on some...

    Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says if an initiative to ban gay marriage qualifies for the November ballot, he's prepared to fight it. California's governor was in San Diego Friday speaking at the annual convention of the Log Cabin Republicans, the nation's largest gay Republican group. Schwarzenegger said he was confident that a ban would never pass in California but called the effort "a waste of time" - joking that he wished activists would focus on allowing naturalized citizens to run for president instead. A Schwarzenegger spokeswoman did not say what prompted the governor to shift his position. He has previously vetoed...

    At a time when momentum and political pundits seem to favor Barack Obama winning the Democratic presidential nomination, other indicators suggest the LGBT community's support is still largely behind Hillary Clinton, except in Texas. And Texas is one of three large primary states remaining that pundits say Clinton must win in order to stay even with Obama in the contest to secure enough delegates to win the nomination. The latest poll in Texas, conducted by CNN February 15-17 among 529 likely primary voters, found Clinton just two points ahead of Obama. A poll just a few days earlier, by the...

    Gay Republicans are in a state of mourning over Mayor Giuliani's exit from the presidential race, but they are moving swiftly into Senator McCain's fold despite concerns that he has not always been faithful to their agenda. "Giuliani was my man," a political organizer in San Francisco's gay community, Christopher Bowman, said. "I'm heartbroken he will not be the nominee of the party." A organization that is effectively the party's gay caucus, the Log Cabin Republicans, posted a message at the top of the group's main Web page Wednesday saluting Mr. Giuliani for his bid and his "service to our...

    Doug Warner seems like a stereotypical Republican: Southern, white, male, he served in the military, drives an SUV and likes hunting and fishing. He is also openly gay. Warner's sexual orientation makes for an awkward fit in a party with a powerful evangelical Christian wing that regards homosexuality as a sin and same-sex marriage as a threat to the traditional family. "I believe that the approach of the social extremists eliminates our party's ability to grow in the future," he told Reuters by phone from his home in Charleston, South Carolina. For years, bashing the "homosexual agenda" worked well for...

Arnold Schwarzenegger, on a mission to remind voters that he is not beholden to the party of President Bush, told a group of gay Republicans on Thursday that no one should be judged by their sexual orientation. "In politics, I believe we need to address problems rather than attacking people," the governor said at a fundraising dinner for the Log Cabin Republicans, a group that has supported him since the 2003 recall election. "Whether you're gay or straight, everyone needs someone to love." The governor's decision to appear at the fundraiser, although it drew television cameras, did...

    SAN FRANCISCO Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger plans to headline a fundraiser for gay Republicans in Hollywood next week in what would be his first appearance in front of a gay audience since he took office, according to the event's organizers. The June 29 fundraiser for Log Cabin Republicans comes as Schwarzenegger considers whether to veto a bill that would require chapters from gay history to be added to public school text books in California. The governor already has indicated he opposes the measure. The governor's stock has been down with gay rights groups since he vetoed a gay marriage bill in...

    Democratic Party Chair Howard Dean has contradicted his partys platform and infuriated gay rights advocates by saying the partys platform states marriage is between a man and a woman. Howard Dean puts his foot in his mouth so often that he should open a pedicure wing in the DNC during his tenure, Log Cabin Republicans President Patrick Guerriero said Wednesday. Howard Deans positions on LGBT issues have changed more often than the weather in New England, where hes from. National Gay & Lesbian (Socialist) Task Force...

    Gay Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson encouraged attendants of a gay Republican convention to continue fighting for social and political equality. "It's not a lot to ask," he said, "and it would make God very happy." Robinson, who spoke April 28 at the Log Cabin Republicans National Convention in Washington, D.C., said the struggle for gay rights ultimately is a struggle for inclusion. He challenged members of the nation's largest gay GOP group to seek fair and equal treatment in society, in politics and in church. Robinson echoed other convention speakers - including Alan Duncan, the first openly gay Conservative in...

    Concord Monitor ^ | March 30. 2006 | Editorial
    I t was just last week that the New Hampshire House overwhelmingly rejected an anti-gay marriage amendment to the state's constitution. But that's by no means the last that residents of this or any other state will hear of the issue. This week Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate renewed their push for a similar amendment to the federal constitution. What's striking about the 16-page paper released by the Senate's Republican Policy Committee is that it could have been written for a readership of one: Sen. John McCain. The last time the Senate took up a marriage amendment, in 2004,...

    ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A gay political organization is asking for an investigation of a drag show at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. The president of the Log Cabin Republicans of Greater St. Louis, Charles Stadtlander, says he attended the October 14th drag show. He raised concerns that the show mocked heterosexual audience members, that performers wore revealing outfits, used inappropriate language and simulated sex acts. He said university officials should not have allowed the event and raised concerns that tax dollars were involved. University spokesman Bob Samples says taxpayer money was not used to fund the event and proper...

    VIRGINIA ISSUES: Kilgore Learns the High Cost of Compromise 2005 Virginia Election Analysis By Joe Glover You cant make friends of your enemies by making enemies of your friends. The pundits are spinning the demise of Jerry Kilgore as a defeat for conservatism and a victory for the moderate middle of the road. Such conclusions are based on the idea that successful campaigns appeal to so-called swing voters who support reasonable candidates from either party on a given day. The poll numbers from Tuesdays election tell us something entirely different, since two unapologetically pro-life, anti-tax conservative candidates fared much better...

    by James Buchanan November 6, 2005 Opposition to Gay marriage is one of the biggest reasons many people still support the Republicans. The idea of Gay marriage is a monstrous moral abomination and the Democrats outraged ordinary Americans pushing that piece of insanity. The Gay marriage issue is a highly charged emotional issue, and just the sort of thing that Republicans look for, which can keep them in power. Meanwhile other issues like reverse discrimination, the illegal war in Iraq and an eight trillion dollar federal debt get pushed to page two. Over the last ten years, an increasing...

    A number of conservatives are seething over the fact that Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), was the featured speaker at a fund-raising event for a group of homosexual Republicans last weekend. One pro-family leader called Norquist's appearance "an act of utter betrayal." Norquist was the main attraction at the "Grand Ol' Party," the largest fund-raising event of the year for the Dallas, Tex., chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans, a homosexual advocacy group within the GOP. Carla Halbrook, a member of the national Log Cabin board and the organization's chapter in Dallas, told Cybercast News...

    A new study from Simmons on the media consumption of the gay and lesbian population suggests that many preconceived notions about this demographic are incorrect, writes Media Life. While it's true that gays favor premium cable channels, consistent with stereotypes, they are also apparently big fans of Comedy Central's South Park, for example. The media usage of this demographic goes beyond Bravo, which airs Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (viewed by 41 percent of the gay population in the last month, compared to 7 percent of overall population). Gay men are most likely to watch the following channels (in...

FRC has worked with Grover Norquist on tax issues and their impact on the family for many years. Because of our relationship, we have voiced our concern directly with Mr. Norquist over his apparent support of this anti-family group. We pointed out to Mr. Norquist that some of the funds raised would be...
