About California Log Cabin Republicans
The Log Cabin Republicans of California is the state umbrella organization of the Log Cabin Republicans. We are open to all who support the Log Cabin Republicans' mission of supporting fairness, freedom, and equality for gay and lesbian Americans. (If you are from out of state but support us, feel free to join too!)
What we believe
We are loyal Republicans. We believe in low taxes, limited government, strong defense, free markets, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. Log Cabin represents an important part of the American family: taxpaying, hard working gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people (and our allies) who proudly believe in this nation's greatness. Log Cabin stands against those who preach hatred and intolerance, and we stand up for the idea that inclusion wins.
Why we exist
The mere existence of our organization recognizes the fact that the Republican Party still has a long way to go on issues affecting GLBT civil rights. In recent years, the GOP has made important strides toward inclusion, however much more must be done. Too many people in the party remain hostile to gay and lesbian civil rights, and too many members of the GLBT community believe that they have no choice but to support the left. Log Cabin stands in the gap, speaking the truth to both sides that freedom means freedom to be who you are.
We are first and foremost a grassroots organization. Seven chapters in California work tirelessly to change minds and hearts. One person at a time, we are building a stronger Republican party and a better California.
