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 Republicans Name R. Clarke Cooper As New Executive Director

Log Cabin Names New Director

The Log Cabin Republicans, a national gay and lesbian Republican grass roots organization, has named R. Clarke Cooper as its new executive director, EDGE Boston reports. Cooper served under George W. Bush for eight years in various foreign affairs positions and served in Iraq as a member of the U.S. Army.

“Log Cabin is fortunate to have Clarke’s skills and experience to lead the organization at this critical time,” said Terry Hamilton, who serves as the group’s National Board Chairman, in a press release. “As Congress is debating the failed ’Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy, we could not have a better advocate in ensuring that this policy gets overturned.”

Cooper will also head up the Liberty Education Forum, which “focuses on reaching out to conservatives and people of faith about issues affecting gay and lesbian Americans.” Cooper takes over for Patrick Sammon, who lead the Log Cabin Republicans since late 2006.
