What's the deal with gay conservatives?

Box Turtle Bulletin has an interesting podcast up this week that asks "What’s the deal with gay conservatives? How does LGBT identity intersect with our politics?" Moderated by Gabriel Arana, it includes analysis by "gay libertarian conservative" Timothy Kincaid and "progressive centre-left gay Democrat" Jim Burroway. Although it is from an American blog & focuses a lot on the gay marriage issue currently raging in the US, it is an interesting look at the current role of gays in the political parties of both left and right which should be of interest to Canadians too.

Listen to it here.

I still distrust libertarians, is it something about the name? Hmmm... Like Liber.. as in Liberal? Gotta wonder. (real conservative)
