Storyline

In 2004, Log Cabin -- the Gay Republican Club -- was put to the test. President Bush's unequivocal opposition to gay marriage presented them with a stark choice, whether to be good Republicans and support the President, or stand up for their civil rights as gay Americans. This decision afforded them a historic opportunity to affect the election but it also opened schisms that threatened the unity of the Log Cabin itself. In GAY REPUBLICANS politics get personal as the Log Cabin wrestle with an issue that goes to the core of their identity. Written by Wash Westmoreland

Shining a captivating light
29 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

Shining a captivating light on gay Republicans and the conflict they face as they struggle to define themselves - as people, as voters and as members of a minority group - this movie follows the decision that gay Republicans had to arrive at in 2004, on whether or not they'll endorse Bush following his decision to support anti-gay legislation.

I thought what was interesting was that being conflicted came off as the sane stance in this movie, while all people who chose a side then dogmatically stuck by it - be it the gay Republicans who recite homophobic views to justify their ongoing support for a political party trying to rob them of their rights or gay people who advocate tolerance and acceptance of those different than themselves, yet can't possibly accept gay Republicans - came across as either hypocrites to one degree or another or blind, whether to themselves or to others.

I found this to be a wonderful look at a group of people that isn't easily - or sometimes, at all - understood by outsiders. I believe this to be quite an accomplishment and I applaud the movie makers for this.

If you're curious at all about gays, Republican gays or how does one live with a conflict, I think this movie would interest you very much.
