I think the fact that I was the first PC leader to lead an official delegation in the Toronto PRIDE parade was an historic first for our party and I was proud to do it. I think that certainly shows how wrong the Liberal spin machine was.
— Patrick Brown, Leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party

We are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Conservatives who refuse to endorse wasteful and ineffective government policies. In a free country like Canada, members of the LGBT community have an obligation to speak up and to support a practical and fiscally responsible government. It is perfectly acceptable and consistent with the freedoms and liberties of Canada to be both LGBT and politically conservative.
