Log Cabin Republicans have always been an enigma in that they define the word counter-intuitive. Why would anyone vote in lock-step with a political party that consistently does not have your best interest at heart? However, a lot goes into voting and voting is not always about social issues; indeed it is often about economics and ones' wallet. That is the core argument Log Cabinites make for voting as they do. In theory Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) vote for their economic interest - or do they?
Let's take a look at what Log Cabin Republicans stand for.
"I get to wake up every day and do something that I love. For that, I feel so blessed, so humbled."
"Playing music is such an immersive thing, I feel such a strong sense of flow and satisfaction blasting out high notes with a roaring jazz band."
"I thought that drag queens lip sync because that is what they do, not because they can't sing."
