We have seen this before with Caitlyn Jenner, she hasn’t got the hint yet and is totally oblivious to the snubs. Well down in Texas the Log Cabin Republicans haven’t gotten the not so subtle hints.

A Fort Worth organization representing LGBTQ Republicans wasn’t allowed to set up a booth at the Texas Republican Party Convention in Houston.
The Fort Worth Log Cabin Republicans is a new chapter of a national organization. The local group and the organization’s state affiliate were denied booths at the event that drew Republicans from across the state, a spokesperson for the party confirmed.
“I know that we need change in Texas party leadership, and there’s a small group of very loud people that are running this, but we will come back in two years and continue to fight forward,” said Jason Baldwin, president of the Log Cabin Republicans of Fort Worth, after earlier saying he’s confident he’s in the right party.
The convention features dozens of booths promoting Republican groups and vendors. Organizations submit applications that are then reviewed and voted on by a committee of the state party.
Texas Republican Party Chair Matt Rinaldi was the deciding vote denying the application, Baldwin said. Rinaldi said he abstained from voting on the application for the state chapter and voted against the Fort Worth chapter’s application after a member of the committee died, to make sure the committee member’s vote was represented.
The national organization of Log Cabin Republicans in a statement condemned the state chapter being excluded.
“It’s clear that inclusion wins, which makes the Texas Republican Party leadership’s decision to exclude the Texas Log Cabin Republicans from their convention not just narrow-minded, but politically short-sighted,” President Charles Moran said.
They need to face reality, they not wanted.
Not only are they not wanted but the Republican shows their hatred against us.
Texas GOP's new platform calls homosexuality 'abnormal' and includes explicitly anti-LGBTQ ideology

The Republican Party of Texas adopted a platform that included explicitly anti-LGBTQ ideology at its biennial convention on Saturday.
The new 40-page platform contains a "Homosexuality and Gender Issues" section that describes being gay as "an abnormal lifestyle choice."
It calls for a policy of fighting against special status for members of the LGBTQ communities and protection against criminal or civil penalties for those who oppose homosexuality out of "faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values."
There is no federal law that protects LGBTQ individuals from discrimination or grants them special status.
The section also includes calls for opposition to "all efforts to validate transgender identity" and a ban on medical practitioners from offering any gender-affirming care to anyone under the age of 21.
The use of taxpayer funds for gender-affirming treatments is also opposed, and the platform pledges support for the protection of conversion therapy.
Here in Connecticut State Rep. Robert Sampson, (R-80th) introduced “HB 5193, An Act Concerning Health Insurance Coverage for Gender Reassignment Surgery” in 2015 to strip us of our health insurance.
In addition to the anti-LGBTQ planks they have also added a plank to their platform according to The Hill...
The Texas Republican Party adopted a new platform declaring that the 2020 election violated the Constitution and President Biden “was not legitimately elected.”
“We reject the certified results of the 2020 presidential election, and we hold that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States,” the platform reads.
So I have my theories about why the LGBTQ+ people are Republicans;
- No empathy towards others.
- Me verses Us.
- I’m gay and not one of those flaming gays.
- I’m gay you’re trans.
- I’m gay and you’re crazy.
- I’m stealth and you’re out.
- Oh and did I mention greed and self-interest.

Differences Between LGB Democrats and Republicans in Identity and Community Connectedness
Compared to LGB Democrats, fewer LGB Republicans said they feel a part of the LGBT community and view participation in the community as positive.
- 41% of the Republican LGB people say that they would want to be straight.
- 38% of the Republican LGB people think being LGB is a short coming.
- 46% of the Republican LGB feel a part of the LGBTQ compared to 72% of the Democrat LGB.
Also, Republican and Democratic LGB people perceived similar levels of rejection and discrimination in the communities where they lived. A majority of each group said that they believed that people thought less of an LGB person and that most people would not want to hire an openly LGB person to take care of their children. Still, a majority of people of both party affiliations thought that most employers would hire an openly LGB person who is qualified for the job.
Centrality of LGB Identity
Republican and Democratic LGB people differed in how they felt about their sexual identity and relationship to the LGBT community. Compared with Democratic LGB people, fewer (but still a majority) of Republican LGB people said that being LGB is a very important aspect of their life.
Compared with Democratic LGB people, more Republican LGB people said they would want to be completely heterosexual and that being LGB is a personal shortcoming. But similar proportions—more than a third—of LGB people of both party affiliations said they had tried to stop being attracted to same-sex partners at some point in their life.
It is like the battle between some of the trans people who have transitioned and had surgery from those who “just crossdress.” It is “Lateral Hostility” where I am more trans than you. You are “just a” man in a dress while I’m a woman!
In summary, this shows a diversity of opinions among LGB people. Although a small minority, LGB people are affiliated as Republicans. Republican and Democratic LGB people similarly perceive stigma against LGB people in their communities. But they differ in terms of their connections with LGBT communities. Our data show that Republican LGB people have a weaker connection to the LGBT community than Democratic LGB people and half as many Republican as Democratic LGB people said that it was important for them to be politically active in the LGBT community.
We saw it in Caitlyn Jenner on her reality TV show when they brought her to LGBTQ community center, she didn’t feel any connections with them. She had no empathy towards them.
