"At a conservative rally, party supporters struck gay activists with sticks, punched them and called them faggots while conservative leader Stephen Harper stood and laughed. Is this the moral leadership we can expect from the radical right," Taylor asks. "If Harper were a real man, he would have demanded respect from the audience. This is a party for the intolerant and is un-Canadian."

Another guest on the radio program, Toronto corporate lawyer Michael Bennett said he was gay and a conservative supporter for economic reasons, citing the past failures of the Liberals and NDP to enact various same sex legislation.

"Mr. Bennett is obviously not a human rights lawyer," Taylor countered. "If you care more about a tax break than your human rights, then you deserve a Reform Conservative government that takes away your Charter freedoms."

While Bennett said he was working within the Conservatives to change their positions, Taylor reminded Canada's largest morning radio audience that this was the party of former Reform MP Bob Ringma, "who gets a standing ovation when he enters a Conservative rally and who once said he would send gays to work 'at the back of the shop.'

"This is the party of Stockwell Day, Myron Thompson, Darrel Stinson" and a host of other blatantly anti-gay MP's who may form the next Canadian cabinet.

Taylor is voting for NDP leader Jack Layton in Toronto-Danforth. He urges support for Liberal MP Bill Graham in Toronto Center for his true support for equality.

"Vote for the pro-equality candidate with the best chance to win in your riding," Taylor says.

Taylor has issued an invitation to Liberal MP Dennis Mills and Conservative Reform leader Stephan Harper "to come and take my marriage license from my cold, dead hands."
