Today, GOProud, the only national organization representing gay conservatives and their allies, announced plans to hold a party with conservative media mogul Andrew Breitbart on Thursday February 10th during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). The Big Party will celebrate GOProud and the growth of a conservative movement that is focused on getting the government out of peoples lives, said Jimmy LaSalvia, Executive Director of GOProud. We are thrilled to have Andrew Breitbart join us in putting together what will be the party of the CPAC weekend.
This party will highlight the story the main stream media has missed in the weeks leading up to CPAC, namely that the vast majority of the conservative movement is united and welcomes GOProud and any other conservative into the fold, said Andrew Breitbart, a member of GOProuds Advisory Council. The truth is that it is liberals in America who are bent on dividing people, on forcing people into ideological boxes based merely on their race, religion, sex or sexual orientation.
The invitation only event will be headlined by Grammy Award nominated singer/songwriter Sophie B. Hawkins, and will be held from 9 PM to Midnight at the 18th Street Lounge in Washington, D.C. The event sponsors include Paul E. Singer, Competitive Enterprise Institute, Poker Players Alliance, Institute for Liberty, and Bank of Kev Productions.
Big Party headliner Sophie B. Hawkins emerged in 1992 with a fierce bidding war for her debut album, Tongues & Tails. The Columbia Records release quickly went gold, earned her a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist, and fired a single, Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover, into the Top Five. Another gold album, Whaler, followed two years later along with the single, As I Lay Me Down that would chart in Billboard for a record-breaking sixty-seven weeks.
By the time she got to Timbre in 1999, she had won universal respect for her rare blend of gutsy honesty. Hawkins subsequently worked out an agreement that allowed her to leave her label while retaining ownership of the masters to Timbre. She re-released Timbre on her Trumpet Swan imprint and hit the roadon her own, with her band in a station wagon.
2004′s Wilderness followed. Working out of her home studio near Los Angeles Hawkins wrote and laid down Wilderness tracks on a variety of instruments: guitar, cello, drums, keys, plus the exotic percussion that has fascinated her since her studies while growing up in New York with African drum legend Babatunde Olatuni and at the Manhattan School of Music. On Wilderness, these elements flow through nuanced arrangements, in which echoes of Nina Simone, Laura Nyro, and other influences only enhance Hawkins unique sound.
August 2006 saw the release of her debut live album, the Bad Kitty Board Mix. Recorded in Seattle, the two-disc set captured the true energy and essence of Sophie as a performer.
Just curious. So does that mean Jesus was lending tacit support to prostitutes, tax collectors, and drunkards when he partied with them? If she threw conservatives under the bus, Id agree with you.
I dont have a problem with socializing; I just have a problem with compromising (like CPAC is). Coulter also told white gays to stop pretending theyre blacks.
It’s a shame what CPAC has degenerated into.
