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.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger recently appointed Leonard Olds, one of the founders of the Log Cabin Republicans, to the California Council for the Humanities, and on Aug. 27, the governor announced the appointment of Don Norte, a board member of Log Cabin Los Angeles, to the California Governor’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities.

“Once again, we applaud the governor for demonstrating his commitment to bringing the best and brightest to public service from all segments of the California community,” said James Vaughn, director of California Log Cabin Republicans, in a statement.

Olds, 64, of Laguna Beach, has been a leader in Log Cabin since 1984 and started the Riverside County Log Cabin chapter in 1991, which he has served as president. LCR is an organization dedicated to building a more inclusive Republican party for LGBT people.

Norte works for West Hollywood’s Department of Transportation and Public Works.
