Ann Coulter Joins Board of Gay Conservative Group

Wednesday, 10 Aug 2011 10:22 PM

Conservative columnist and best-selling author Ann Coulter is now on the advisory board of a leading group of gay conservatives, according to Yahoo News.

GOProud, a small Washington, D.C.-based organization that represents gay conservatives, announced on Tuesday that Coulter had joined other conservative notables like Andrew Breitbart on the group’s board.

GOProud claims the support of a string of high-profile conservatives, including anti-tax activist Grover Norquist and Republican strategist Roger Stone. They, too, serve on the board.

"I am honored to serve in this capacity on GOProud's Advisory Council, and look forward to being the queen of fabulous," Coulter said in a statement.

Coulter headlined GOProud's first national meeting last fall, where she sparred with attendees over gay marriage, a policy she personally opposes.

Coulter -- who calls herself "the right-wing Judy Garland"-- she says that she has a secret gay fan base.

"I didn't expect that so many gays would be such huge fans of mine, but yet, it's true," Coulter said during a recent interview with C-SPAN.

"I think all gays who were born gay are overwhelmingly conservative--maybe apolitical--and all those angry gays, causing trouble for everybody, I don't even think they were born gay, I just think they were angry at their fathers."

The group's existence has caused a stir within the conservative movement, which is grappling with whether to accept organizations that identify as gay, according to Yahoo News. The American Conservative Union decided last month to reject GOProud as a co-sponsor of its annual Conservative Political Action Conference, after several groups boycotted the 2011 convention in protest of GOProud's presence. The chairman of the American Conservative Union met with GOProud's executive director, Jimmy LaSalvia, and its chairman, Christopher Barron, last week.
