Contgressman Early Blumenauer, who represents a large swath of Portland, poses for the No H8 campaign

Contgressman Early Blumenauer, who represents a large swath of Portland, poses for the No H8 campaign

We love our bowtie wearing Congressman Earl Blumenauer for many reasons including his bikey liberal ways and staunch support of LGBT rights. Now we have even more photographic evidence that he’s super awesome and has great, if eclectic fashion sense that a Portland queer can get behind.

Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum

With a frighteningly high place finish in the Iowa caucus last week, all of the sudden Rick Santorum is warranting actual, serious attention.
