Is the Trump administration the most LGBT-friendly in history, or the most anti-LGBT in history? Does Trump’s personal ease and relationships with gay people mean a new openness, or does it paper over old prejudices? How does the LGBT community fit into the new global right-populist trend?

As most of you know, our dear friend Gregory T. Angelo recently stepped down after six years of service as Executive Director of Log Cabin Republicans.

This is your chance to meet his successor, Jerri Ann Henry! Hear her speak about her vision, join in conversation, ask questions and welcome her to the community. As the DC chapter, we should never take for granted the privilege of having the national leadership in our town. Make sure to catch this event!

She managed Young Conservatives for the Freedom to Marry leading into the Obergefell Supreme Court decision, and the Platform Reform campaign during the 2016 election cycle.  Jerri Ann has served in leadership positions on numerous policy and Republican congressional campaigns.

During the last decade in Washington D.C., Henry has developed digital listening and engagement tools for many corporate and non-profit organizations. Her unique approach to fully integrated digital activism, combined with a strong understanding of right-of-center messaging on difficult issues led to her recognition as a leader within the industry. She has been recognized as a Rising Star by Campaigns & Elections and a Future 40 Leader by Maverick PAC.

In addition, Henry has served in leadership positions for a number of organizations including Maverick PAC, Young Republicans of Alexandria, Women’s Public Leadership Network (WPLN), the National Federation of Republican Women, the Texas State Society and others. She is a native of Dallas, Texas and a graduate of Texas A&M University. Currently Ms. Henry, her wife, and their dog live in Alexandria, VA where they are active in the local community.

DC LCR Endorsements for Delegates to RNC

“The Log Cabin Republicans of the District of Columbia voted on Feb. 17 to endorse six of its members as candidates to become delegates from D.C. to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July. All six of the candidates, who are gay men, said they are running to become uncommitted delegates.” “I’m thrilled to see so many of our members running and am optimistic at the prospects our members could bring to the Republican Party and the District,” said Chris Allen, president of the D.C. Log Cabin group, which is a chapter of the national Log Cabin Republicans organization. The announced candidates include D.C. Log Cabin head Allen, National Log Cabin Republicans President Gregory Angelo, and local gay GOP activists Joe Brookman, Stephen Jordan, Rick Oettinger and Justin Kingsolver.

February Candidate Meet & Mingle and Chapter Endorsement Meeting
February 17, 2016
7:00pm-9:00pm
Camden Roosevelt Apartments (2101 16th Street NW)

The first two presidential primaries are behind us, and the next set are just days away. But the next White House occupant isn’t the only position we need to fill. Right here in the District of Columbia, the Chapter will hear from two candidates to represent the DC GOP to the Republican National Committee – Jill Homan and Bob Kabel – and a great pick for a DC at-large council seat in Dave Oberting.

But that’s not all! Six members of the Chapter are running to be delegates from the District to the Republican National Convention, where they will participate in the process to officially determine the GOP nominee who will replace Barack Obama and start putting this country back on the right track. Those members are:

Chris Allen, Chapter President
Gregory Angelo, National President
Joe Brooman
Stephen Jordan
Rick Oettinger
Justin Kingsolver

Come meet, drink, and mingle with these nine promising candidates who have earned unanimous endorsements from the Chapter Board of Directors and wish to earn your endorsement as well!

We look forward to seeing you!
