Pro-LGBT Conservatives To Meet In Orlando

Organized by GOP consultant Patrick Slevin and backed by the Miami-based SAVE Foundation, Conservatives on the Right Side of Equality will host a mixer on May 8th.

We are proud to announce our partnership with Conservatives on the Right Side of Equality in their efforts in obtaining proper workplace protections for our brothers and sisters in the LGBT community.

As a gay man, I do not wish for anyone to be mistreated on the basis of their sexual orientation and believe that all people should live or die on their own merits in the workplace. The Republican Party and conservative movement under President Trump have become ever more accepting of LGBT people, ditching the bedroom policing of the religious right that plagued us for several decades.

“SAVE is one of the most respected and trusted LGBT organizations in Florida. This is why Conservatives on the Right Side of Equality initiative has more than 300 conservatives as pledged supporters,” said Patrick Slevin, head of SL7 Consulting.

Longwood Mayor Ben Paris, known for his libertarian leanings and being the “Millenial Mayor”, will be speaking at the May 8th reception for Conservatives on the Right Side of Equality.

“It’s the responsibility of every politician to fight and defend the rights, freedom and equal treatment of all Americans… PERIOD. An attack on any group for simply being who they are is an attack all of us.”

Paris will be joined by State Representative Rene Plasencia and Florida State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President Julio Fuentes, and Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg.

“Nobody should have to worry about losing their job or facing obstacles in the workplace based on their sexual orientation. Hard work should speak for itself. As an entrepreneur who built a successful INC 500 company, we succeeded by empowering people… not allowing personal or political beliefs to get in the way of reaching and exceeding our goals,” stated Greenberg, who defeated a corrupt Hillary Clinton style incumbent in 2016.

Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs and State Representative Mike Miller are also considering attending the event along with dozens of other Central Florida political and business leaders.

“I support what Conservatives on the Right Side of Equality are doing to end LGBT discrimination in Florida,” said State Rep. Rene “Coach P” Plasencia of Orlando.

“There are thousands of center-right conservatives who oppose discrimination against all citizens to include LGBT people. I’m proud to support this growing coalition of conservative influencers.”
