Log Cabin Republicans President Gregory Angelo has condemned the Republican Party platform as “the most anti-LGBT platform in the Party’s 162-year history.” Here’s an excerpt from the letter he sent out following passage of the platform:
“There’s no way to sugar-coat this: I’m mad as hell — and I know you are, too.
“Moments ago, the Republican Party passed the most anti-LGBT Platform in the Party’s 162-year history.
“Opposition to marriage equality, nonsense about bathrooms, an endorsement of the debunked psychological practice of ‘pray the gay away‘ — it’s all in there.
“This isn’t my GOP, and I know it’s not yours either. Heck, it’s not even Donald Trump’s! When given a chance to follow the lead of our presumptive presidential nominee and reach out to the LGBT community in the wake of the awful terrorist massacre in Orlando on the gay nightclub Pulse, the Platform Committee said NO.”
Angelo then went on to ask for donations to allow Log Cabin to run ads in the Cleveland newspapers during the convention next week.
