Kevin And Don Respond To Being Self Loathing
Looking back at their journey from the Stonewall Democratic Club to Log Cabin Republicans, they claim it was one that was actually started by the democrats. After being told that marriage as not a priority on the agenda in 1995, they became disillusioned with the DEMS. For a decade they felt like they did not belong until they met the republicans of the Log Cabin Republican Club and discovered they too shared a dream of marriage equality. This blog is now a digital time capsule of their time as Republicans and moderated by a friend and supporter.

Dress Up Is Moot
I'm kind of annoyed to still find homosexual stereotypes perpetuated in the media, even if it is by a throw away paper. The November 9th edition of the West Hollywood Independent's front page article "As Acceptance Rises, So Do Stats" written by Lorena Fernandez makes it seem like she has been sleeping for the past 20 years. The opening paragraph is outrageous when one considers the strides the gay and lesbian community has made with the great work of non-profits like GLAAD to educate the public and portray homosexuals in a realistic way. It states "When 12 men dress up as women and run around on what is arguably the most transited street of a city, it is safe to say society is more open minded about homosexuality than it was in the last century". All kidding aside, I think we deserve an appology. To think that the author believes a dozen drag queens running down Santa Monica Boulevard represent acceptance of homosexuality across the nation is ridiculous and patronizing. I ask what this has to do at all with the subject of the ban on same-sex marraige being debated across the country? Oh Please!
