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.

Log Cabin Still Fighting Prop 8


Long before Election Day, in addition to our work with “Republicans Against 8,” Log Cabin members were on the frontlines of the battle to keep discrimination out of the California State Constitution.  You’ve heard of the “revision vs. amendment” argument being put forth by the opponents of Prop 8 in the current court case?  It was first published by long-time activist and Log Cabin member Kevin Norte in the Metropolitan News last May!  Log Cabin is still fighting.  This week we submitted an amicus brief supporting the challenge to Proposition 8 and its ban on marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples.  “Proposition 8 is an unprecedented attempt to use the initiative amendment process to eviscerate constitutional rights only for a targeted minority,” said Terry Hamilton, a California resident who serves as Log Cabin’s National Board Chairman.  “The California Constitution provides equal protection to all Californians to prevent the majority stripping fundamental rights from one group of citizens.”
