The boycott of the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego has been underway for almost two years, has caused quite a few non-LGBT associations to relocate their conferences to other hotels, is estimated to have cost the hotel $18 million, and has been repeatedly cited in other states as a reason for rightwing businesses not to donate to homophobic ballot initiatives. That two cases to keep names of donors to antigay ballot initiatives secret are working their ways through the federal court system shows that donors have seen what could happen to them if their political donations become known to their client base, no doubt in large part due to the much-publicized and on-going boycott of the Manchester Grand Hyatt.
In May, 2009, the hotel tried to buy out the protesters, offering $100,000 in hotel credit and $25,000 in cash to any LGBT org that would take it. Not much, and it didn't answer the demands of the labor half of the boycott at all (they want to unionize the hotel employees). So no LGBTQ org was willing to take the cash.
Enter GOProud, the newer gay and lesbian conservative org. They're the Rush Limbaugh to the Log Cabin's Barry Goldwater, the offensive-for-the-sake-of-being-offensive-style conservative group. And they're taking the money and becoming the first queer org to cross the picket line and stay at the hotel.
