Thumbnail image for Pink ElephantYesterday, Bilerico co-founder and National Stonewall Democrats Executive Director, Jerame Davis, appeared on the Thom Hartmann Program to talk about the plight of gay Republicans in the 2012 presidential election cycle. Noted politico Karl Frisch guest hosted the show and the conversation is an interesting back and forth.

You can tell that Jerame is getting more and more comfortable with all of the media appearances he has to do for his job now. He's done interviews with publications around the nation now and made television appearances from stations as far away as the United Kingdom. Now he's taking his brand of LGBT politics to America's #1 progressive radio show.

With Obama coming out in full support of LGBT rights, how can gay Republicans continue to shill for a candidate who wants to institute McCarthy-style investigations into our community for "religious persecution" and keeps crowing about his support for a federal marriage amendment?

You won't want to miss it. Listen in after the break.
