Now is not the time for conservatives to be quiet, especially gay conservatives. I believe the gay community has immense influence over the direction of cultural progress and gay conservatives and libertarians like me need to come out of the closet and start fighting to take the reins.

I came out as a gay conservative in Vancouver. Here's what happened.


Coming out as gay in rural Scotland wasn’t easy, but it was a walk in Stanley Park compared to coming out as a conservative in Vancouver.

That's because Vancouver is liberal -- and the Vancouver gay scene is VERY liberal.

As the flamboyant conservative activist Milo Yiannopoulos tweeted:

I had no trouble coming out as gay. I had a lot of trouble coming out as a gay conservative.

He wasn’t exaggerating.
