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.

American Airlines Does Not Get It RIGHT!
American Airlines is acitvely going after the gay American U.S. Dollar but when it comes to Log Cabin Republicans or the Liberty Education Forum, they do not exist on the American Airlines Gay Events Calendar. I wrote to the about them Convention in Denver from May 3 - 6, 2007, but LCR/LEF are still not included in the calendar.
I do not know if it because AA are not a sponsor and their competitor is an official sponsor of the convention and symposium or because LCR/LEF are too "RIGHT" for them. Regardless, they now publish a yearly gay calendar of events in the United States regardless of whether they are the official airline of the event or not but LCR & LEF are excluded from the calendar.
I guess the "Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend" and the "Los Angeles Leather Weekend" are worth of inclusion community inclusion (even without any type of AA code) but not LCR/LEF.
If you fly to Denver on AA (after all I do give them credit for being the first airline to offer "Domestic Partner" benefits), you can use the general LGBT Community's "Business ExtrAA" Account 527583 when booking on-line and earn 1,000 bonus miles added to ones frequent flyer account (assuming you have one with AA). In fact, you can use 527583 whenever you book on line to get 1,000 bonus miles.
It is just SHAMFUL that AA chooses to exclude LCR/LEF from the calendar for any reason at all.
