Gay homocons right rise

Gay liberation's founders were Communists, and its activist core is still overwhelmingly progressive. But in recent years, a more affluent group of gay men has begun to make its mark. Though they are a minority in the queer community which includes people of all races, classes and genders , conservatives have become the loudest gay voices in the mainstream media. With their withering contempt for feminism and radical politics, these 'gayocons' are changing the movement's public image.

History of the Anti-Gay Movement Since 1977
I know three homocons
This review was originally published in the Australian Journal of American Studies , December , and is reprinted here with permission. Queer mythology has it that the gay rights movement began on a steamy June night in Greenwich Village. Mourning the death of camp icon Judy Garland, and provoked by yet another police raid, the patrons of a Christopher Street dance bar took issue with their maltreatment and fought back. The dispute widened, fell into the streets, and over several nights of conflict, the Stonewall Riots raged. No matter that a generation of post-Stonewall historians have convincingly laid bare a more complex genealogy of homosexual resistance and identity formation. Today, were you to ask your average homosexual citizen in New York or Sydney for that matter where modern gay life began, I suspect the answer would be, more often that not, at Stonewall.

AP Explains: The rocky rise of LGBT rights in Latin America
Born-again singer Anita Bryant campaigns to overturn an anti-discrimination law protecting gay men and lesbians in Dade County, Fla. Inspired by her victory, Bryant founds the first national anti-gay group, Save Our Children, drawing unprecedented attention to gay issues and motivating gay groups to organize in response. Focus will move to Colorado Springs, Colo. Calling gay people "militant, organized" and "vile," LaHaye anticipates anti-gay arguments to come.
Conservatism refers to any political, economic and social tendency to maintain and preserve the present status quo rather than give way to any degree of change. In countries where a religious or ethnic conservatism has prevailed as a dominant social order aspect, LGBT populations tend to receive worse treatment or less guarantee that their human rights could be respected, or that their lives could be preserved, when knowledge of one's non-heteronormative sexual orientation is made known publicly. Conservative organizations, laws and acts of violence often tend to serve as a primary bastion of opposition against the granting of civil rights to LGBT citizens. In countries or regions where LGBT populations enjoy more extensive civil rights assurances, the LGBT population may become split along ideological lines of a political or social nature, and LGBT conservatism may appear as a sociopolitical force.
