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.

Brothers and Sisters Gets It RIGHT

According to, "Much of the credit for this queer coup belongs to series creator and writer Jon Robin Baitz, who's openly gay himself. Baitz has written nuanced queer characters into plays like "The Paris Letter" and "Ten Unknowns," and he contributed to the video version of "Love! Valour! Compassion!" Baitz knows the gay terrain well, in life and in fiction."

"Sister Kitty may be less of a gay activist than Mom, but she's also far from homophobic. Played by Calista Flockhart, Kitty is a conservative talk show host who supports "family values" but also Log Cabin Republicans -- who won't stop trying to recruit poor Democrat Kevin because of his famous Ann Coulter-ish sister. Kitty surprised Kevin in a recent episode by urging him to donate sperm to his impotent brother; Kevin reminded Kitty she's supposed to be "pro-family," to which she answered, "Last time I checked, brothers were family!" "
