Log Cabin Republicans Statement on DCCC Homophobia

Date:

Washington, D.C. – Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) has recently been made aware of homophobic and racist tweets made by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC) newly appointed Diversity Director, Tayhlor Coleman.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, Ms. Coleman used the phrase “no homo” in a series of tweets as well as relayed that she was “concerned about safety” in relation to Mexicans being nearby.

LCR executive director, Jerri Ann Henry, released the following statement:

“It’s shocking to see such blatant homophobia and racism stem from Cheri Bustos and the DCCC, which claims to be in full support of LGBTQ+ and minority communities. It is a shame that Bustos and the DCCC have refused to acknowledge and address this problem. This is just the latest example of contradictory behavior by Democrats who have recently defended antisemitism, a serial rapist, and infanticide. Our communities deserve better.”

Log Cabin Republicans is the nation’s premier Republican organization representing LGBT conservatives and straight allies. For more than 40 years we have advocated for an inclusive Republican Party with state and local chapters nationwide, a full-time office in Washington, D.C., a federal political action committee and state political action committees.
