Last night’s Primetime Emmy awards showcased several gay and lesbian characters and shows.
Conservative writer and talking-head Ann Coulter responded to being dropped from media outlet World Net Daily’s “Taking Back America Conference” in comments on Fox News this weekend.
Coulter, one of several high-profile conservatives who voiced some kind of support for LGBT issues or LGBT organizations in recent weeks, is scheduled to speak at Homocon, a conservative conference sponsored by GOProud, a national gay Republican group.
“I’m sorry, I did not prepare for this discussion. I have no idea what you’re talking about,” Coulter said initially.
