Pennsylvania leads in LGBT delegates to the Libertarian nominating convention

25 May
Pennsylvania, leads in gay delegates to the Libertarian Party convention, perhaps because Philadelphia is the city of brotherly love!  No other state has more than 2 LGBT delegates as far as we can tell.   Which seems impossible.  California must but we can’t identify them, even after mailing state parties and delegation chairs.  Most poor heterosexual libertarians have replied to me befuddled that they have never inquired about their delegates’ sexual orientations.

Updated daily
Not to make heterosexuals or others feel left out, but we are assembling this list (in formation) for the gay press, the gay delegates themselves, and other interested parties.

Over one thousand Libertarians (including over 900 delegates and over 300 alternates) convene in Orlando on Memorial Day weekend to revise the platform and nominate candidates.  One gay delegate, Kerry McKennon, has also thrown his hat in the ring for the vice presidential nomination, though I don’t think he is a front runner.  Among the 3 major candidates for the LP presidential nomination and the dozen plus minor ones I do not know of any LGBTqwerties. One delegation chair, Bruce Majors of DC, is gay.  Outright Libertarians, a caucus in the LP, will hold its biennial national meeting on 5:45 pm on May 29 at the convention.

If you see yourself here and want to have yourself removed or have your contact info added, just tell me.  We do know of a few more LGBT delegates who are not listed here who have never sought to be identified publicly as LGBT, so we have not included them.
