Meet The First Openly Gay Miss America Contestant in History - If she wins, that would be so awesome. She is Miss Missouri but she is originally from SOUTH CAROLINA!!!!

 A Gay Republican, The Child Abuse He Sanctioned, And The Homophobia Used To Defend Him - An uuuugly situation with the Log Cabin Republicans smack dab in the middle.

 Donald Trump And The So-Called 'Values Voters' - And the bigots and homophobes merrily move along together . . .  

DOJ report spurs police LGBT Advisory Council - There need to be more councils like that, hopefully not after incidents like this one spurring their creation.

Trump cozying up to anti-lgbt hate groups, personalities this weekend

Today is the beginning of the 2016 "Values Voter Summit" put on by the anti-lgbt hate group the Family Research Council. Keeping my description of FRC in mind, it doesn't take a palm reader to guess who attendees and speakers at this weekend monstrosity will be attacking.

This year will be extra nauseating because GOP presidential candidate and self-described "friend to the gay community" Donald Trump will be one of the speakers. With various members of the media seemingly more concerned with Hillary Clinton's "emails" and "optics," it's up to folks like yours truly to highlight the coming visual disaster of Trump's visit.

I've already written a post about the vile homophobia of folks and groups who will be present at this summit. Now let's focus a little more on the group sponsoring it, the Family Research Council. There are very good reasons why FRC has been called a hate group.
