Liberal in Bed, Conservative in the Head


Has the conservative movement become a champion of gay rights? Is gun-owning, lesbian singer Sophie B. Hawkins of "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" fame a liberal in bed and conservative in the head?

Last night, Reason's Michael Moynihan dropped by the Big Gay Party, a celebration of the role of the conservative movement in advocating for gay rights, which was hosted by conservative gay group GOProud and new media mogul Andrew Breitbart. The party was part of the festivities surrounding the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which was boycotted by some conservatives because of GOProud's participation.

The video features interviews with Army Lt. Dan Choi, Gay Activist; Andrew Breitbart,; Fred Smith, president of the Competitive Enterprise Institute; radio host Guy Benson; Evan Coyne Maloney, the director of Indoctrinate U; Michael Steele, former Republican National Committee chair; Liz Mair, GOProud Advisory Council; Bruce Majors, libertarian blogger; Richard Grenell, Capitol Media Partners; Larry O'Connor,; and singer-songwriter Sophie B. Hawkins.

About 7 minutes.
