WASHINGTON, DC – The DC Chapter of Log Cabin Republicans would like to congratulate one of its members, Marc Morgan, who was voted by the readers of the Washington Blade as the Best Gay D.C. Politician in their 10th annual “Best of Gay D.C.” issue. The award was announced last evening at Hotel Helix, where over 300 friends and supporters gathered for special tributes to Frank Kameny and Chris Crowe, who both died earlier this year. Morgan currently serves as President of the LeDroit Park Civic Association and lost a bid for City Council in Ward 1 last year.

“We congratulate Mr. Morgan on his award. It is obvious that the community has noticed his efforts for LeDroit Park and Ward 1,” said President Robert Turner. “I also find it amusing that he beat out the two sitting gay members of the Council. Clearly, David Catania (I-At Large) and Jim Graham (D-Ward 1) are getting lazy and taking gay voters for granted. It appears that Washingtonians are looking elsewhere for leadership within the gay community. Perhaps the city council should have police arrest fewer people for expired license tags and more for gay bashing.”

Log Cabin Republicans is a national organization started in 1977 that believe in low taxes, limited government, strong defense, free markets, personal responsibility, and individual liberty. The DC Chapter holds monthly meetings, supports local Republican candidates and sponsors monthly social gatherings. For more information, please visit
