The GOProud/CPAC kerfuffle is the cover story for today’s Metro Weekly, which should appear online by the end of the day. Reporter Chris Geidner interviewed me for about an hour on Monday, so we have to see how much of my take was, uh, printable. Here’s the teaser, via press release:
GOProud has a fight on its hands. From the left, right and middle, organizations and activists argue with, debate and even ignore the gay conservative group that’s now heading into its second year at CPAC, the annual conservative conference. But – in the conservative arena that is the group’s aim – GOProud is winning, as an attempted boycott because of the group’s CPAC participation fizzled and the group is making serious inroads in the conservative movement. From longtime conservative activists like Grover Norquist to new media names like Andrew Breitbart, GOProud is grabbing attention – and friends – in the conservative movement. Metro Weekly senior political writer Chris Geidner talks with GOProud, allies and critics as CPAC gets under way – and as GOProud looks to the future.
