Michael Wanzie

This is not my typical rant about how I am mystified by the very concept of Log Cabin Republicans. Instead this my sincere and earnest plea to LGBT persons who are registered Republicans to please come to your senses, and just for this one election, for your own sake, step away from the people – Republicans seeking office – who, if elected, will in fact drag us backward, reversing every stride we as a community have made toward equality over the past decade.

Your party has spoken. Your heterosexual Bible-thumping homophobic colleagues have voted for and adopted a platform that clearly and emphatically states YOU do not matter. A platform that clearly and emphatically states they intend to target YOU; to pro-actively work and vote to reverse YOUR marriages and declare YOUR unions once again illegal. To keep YOU from adopting. They have stated clearly and emphatically they intend to support the right of businesses to deny YOU goods and services simply because of who YOU are. In light of these very real, very dangerous, archaic planks in your party’s platform how can you possibly vote for Republicans in the upcoming election?

Buckhorn urges NCAA to return in 2016

The NCAA women’s tournament has come and gone through Tampa (it was held April 3-5) but Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn saw an opportunity to keep it another year. The LGBT friendly mayor addressed a letter to NCAA president Mark Emmert on April 2 encouraging the organization to pull the 2016 tournament out of Indiana and return it to Tampa. “A championship host city should reflect that spirit of sport. Championship games held in the state of Indiana with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in effect can no longer do so. I encourage you to relocate the 2016 Women’s Final Four to Tampa from Indianapolis.” Tampa is already slated to host the 2019 tournament. No word on if the NCAA will take Buckhorn up on his 2016 offer.
