Log Cabin Republicans Launch Maryland Chapter
For Immediate Release - Annapolis, MD
March 9, 2021
The Log Cabin Republicans of Maryland chapter announces its revival as a local chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans national organization; a group dedicated to representing LGBT conservatives and allies. This newly revived chapter brings the national organization’s chapter count to 46, located in 24 states, and the District of Columbia.
The Log Cabin Republicans of Maryland chapter mission is to build a Maryland Republican Party that is inclusive of Conservatives from all walks of life. It is often a talking point of the political left-wing that the GOP is not a welcoming organization to all, however Log Cabin Republicans of Maryland will work to discredit that false narrative.
“We want to show that the Republican Party is a big-tent party comprised of Americans from all backgrounds, which destroys the narrative perpetuated by the political left,” said Log Cabin Republicans of Maryland chapter President, Heath Barnes.
The Log Cabin Republicans of Maryland chapter will play an active role in continuing to advocate for LGBT issues in the State. Supporting Maryland Republican candidates who promote an inclusive Republican Party and stand for conservative values will be a primary focus of the chapter.
“Over the last seven years Marylanders have been able to breathe easier with a popular Republican Governor dedicated to the bringing business to the state, and who is upholding traditional Republican values.” said Log Cabin Republicans of Maryland chapter Vice President, Jimmy Jaramillo.
The chapter is looking forward to the upcoming 2022 Maryland State elections and ensuring a Republican occupies the Governor’s Mansion in Annapolis!
About Log Cabin Republicans:
Since the late 1970’s, Log Cabin Republicans have a proud history of fighting to build a stronger, more inclusive Republican Party. LGBT Republicans and straight allies have chosen to transform the GOP from the inside, working to overcome the forces of exclusion and intolerance.
The name of the organization is a reference to the first Republican President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, who was born in a Log Cabin. President Lincoln built the Republican Party on the principles of liberty and equality under the law.
