The article is a roller coaster of a read, painting vivid scenes of drunken failed flirtations at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, transgender women aiming to win hearts and minds at the colorfully eccentric Conservative Political Action Conference, and even a gay cowboy politician campaigning at an Oklahoma country bar. However, as a gay libertarian professional and current executive board member of the DC Log Cabin Republicans, I feel that the article is light on articulating what the future of the LGBT Right will look like. That is to say, what policies, if any, will unite us as a political group moving forward? Indeed, I hesitate to ask what LGBT leaders on the Right, if any, have been effective in laying out a vision for gay rights in the post-Obergefell age.

Leftist sexual politics and homosexuality: a historical overview.
For almost a full century now, the revolutionary prospect of socialism has fuelled opening forays first of the homosexual emancipation and later of the gay liberation movements, both in Europe and in North America. While the official socialist parties of Northwestern Europe may have made only limited contributions to homosexual emancipation, they certainly have a better record than conservative and Christian parties and even the liberals, who have consistently, if contradictorily, underlined the freedom of private life. Even so, parties across the entire political spectrum have gradually come to endorse at least some of the movement's goals.
A disproportionate number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender LGBT youth experience homelessness each year in the United States. LGBT youth who are homeless have particularly high rates of mental health and substance use problems, suicidal acts, violent victimization, and a range of HIV risk behaviors. Given the intense needs of LGBT youth experiencing homelessness, it is imperative that we understand their unique experiences and develop responsive practices and policies. The range and severity of health risks vary across subgroups of all homeless LGBT youth, and since the population is nonhomogeneous their particular needs must be identified and addressed.
