Syndicated ultra-conservative columnist and best-selling author Ann Coulter is joining the advisory council of GOProud, a conservative organization comprised primarily of homosexuals.
The group announced Tuesday that Coulter is now an “honorary chair” and her official title will be “gay icon.”
“Ann Coulter is a brilliant and fearless leader of the conservative movement; we are honored to have her as part of GOProud’s leadership,” board Chairman Christopher Barron said in the group’s official statement. “Ann helped put our organization on the map. Politics is full of the meek, the compromising and the apologists — Ann, like GOProud, is the exact opposite of all of these things. We need more Ann Coulters.”
Coulter, who has a history of anti-gay statements and who does not support marriage equality – at least not publicly – joins anti-tax activist Grover Norquist, online media mogul Andrew Breitbart, Republican strategist Roger Stone, and a slew of other noted conservatives, all of whom serve on the organization’s council.
Despite her opposition to same-sex marriage, Coulter issued the following statement, approving her new role on the group’s board:
“I am honored to serve in this capacity on GOProud’s Advisory Council, and look forward to being the queen of fabulous.”
