Folks, I’m relegated to writing this from my iPhone. But it is big news and a huge topic tonight at CPAC.
Earlier today, during a student activist session on the CPAC main stage, one brave young man thanked the group for including GOProud as a sponsor this year.
A few minutes later, another student launched into an anti-gay tirade from the same podium. The CPAC attendees turned on him and booed him off-stage.
HotAir.com has the video on their front page. GP readers, if you could put some links in the comments — that would be great.
Today was a turning point for gays in the conservative movement. I’m so glad I am here to see it in person.
UPDATE (from Dan): A friend linked me this post from Students For Liberty (maybe we should set up group, “Gays For Liberty”) on this matter. Seems some left-wing bloggers are taking notice. This is a big deal and shows that most mainstream conservatives don’t have much stomach for such nasty rhetoric.
