GREGORY T ANGELO speaks to Eoin Drinan about the Log Cabin Republicans movement who represent LGBT republicans in America. Gregory shares the history of the formation of the group and its connections with Ronald Reagan.

They discuss the purpose of the party and their working fighting for the rights of LGBT within the political landscape of America and explore the fact that there are many for and many against LGBT policy within the Republican party itself.

They talk of the American Supreme court rulings of the time and the positive effect that these have had for the group, while stating that there is much more work to be done to create a reality of “Freedom to Marry” for LGBT couples across the states.

Gregory speaks of a tremendous amount of enthusiasm from people wishing to get involved with their work, spread across many different states in the USA.
