Walking the GOP plank

Log Cabin Republicans decried the Republican Platform Committee’s final draft of the GOP 2016 platform, calling it,”the most anti-LGBT platform in the Party’s 162-year history.”

The LCR pointed out that “the 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,” wrote LCR President Gregory T. Angelo. “Heck, it’s not even Donald Trump’s.” Angelo praised Trump for “reaching out to the LGBT community in the wake of the awful [terrorist] massacre in Orlando.”

Other platform planks:

  • Claim children raised in a “traditional” family are better off
  • Transgender people should use the restroom of the gender assigned at birth
  • Calls for a ban on marriage equality
  • Supports LGBT conversion therapy
  • Defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman
