I’m thrilled to announce that the blog formerly known as “GayPatriot”… is back!
If you aren’t familiar with this site, let me give you a brief history of how GayPatriot began.
In the summer and fall of 2004, two prominent left-wing gay activists were “outing” gay staffers who worked for Republican Members of Congress. These individuals were not public figures, they were public servants. Many were young and this outing crusade terrified these staffers; they had not told their families or their employers about their sexual orientation.
It was no one’s business except theirs when they wanted to “come out” but the left-wing gay activists decided to terrorize these young people.
So I started the GayPatriot blog to shine the light on this effort and provide a counter-argument to the outing crusade.
The blog began on Blogspot (you follow old people remember Blogspot, right?)… and so some of the original postings are lost.
The GayPatriot blog’s original mission morphed into a platform for gay conservative issues and served as a counterbalance to Andrew Sullivan (who went off the deep end) in the mid-2000s. Thanks to Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit and the folks at PajamasMedia (now PJ Media), GayPatriot became a go-to mainstream conservative opinion blog.
My original co-blogger Dan (aka GayPatriotWest) joined me early on and provided a fantastic different perspective on news and culture that added more depth to the site than I could have hoped. Over the years, we have had a variety of other contributors and many thanks to “VtheK” who held down the fort for many years as I drifted away from blogging.
But now we are back. Why? Because today’s “cancel culture” reminds me a lot of my original mission to counter the “outing” witchhunt from the Gay Left. It also seems appropriate to relaunch as the Biden/Harris Administration gets going so this site can revel in the media’s hypocrisy — another theme of the original GayPatriot site.
I’ve invited new contributors to blog with me and they will introduce themselves over the next couple of days.
Please feel free to comment and be an active member of our community. We accept all inputs and I will have a very light touch on moderating comments — unless you are an asshole.
And as always remember: Don’t vote with your body parts…. it’s gross.
