I am busy working on a couple pieces on the Pennsylvania primary and the Democratic race for the White House which I’d like to post before the polls close today in the Keystone State, so won’t give this the attention it deserves right now, but wanted to alert you to a Log Cabin release which deserves broad circulation.
In a recent piece on gay Republicans in “Out” magazine, the “reporter” Charles Kaiser “failed to talk to one single gay Republican for the article. Our friend Chris Crain, hardly a Republican he (but fair to Republicans on his blog and in person) took note:
But talk about an appallingly bad jobâ€¦ Author Charles Kaiser (“The Gay Metropolis”) was the one tasked with shedding some insight on the phenomenon of closeted gay Republicans. So who did he talk to: Barney Frank, outing activist/ blogger Mike Rogers, an unnamed Democratic political consultant and a gay Washington Post reporter.
What about an actual living, breathing gay Republican (closeted or otherwise)? Wouldn’t they be at least relevant? Could Kaiser not find the number for Log Cabin?
I’ll have more to say on this later, particularly some thoughts about the “reporter” th magazine chose to write this piece. And wondering why some gay journalists, playwrights and screenwriters feel they can write about gay Republicans without ever talking to gay Republicans.
Kudos to Log Cabin for exposing the anti-Republican bias in gay media. And kudos to our friend Chris Crain for the fairness of his blogging.
