Equality can't be gained from only one perspective. If LGBT people want to truly affect political and social change, start by having a presence in the Republican Party. Consider yourself more blue-state? Click here for the Democratic view.

Why you should give to republican causes: As Republicans, we believe in limited government, strong defense, free markets, personal responsibility, low taxes, and individual liberty. We believe every person is created equal. Everyone should have the same rights to liberty and equality. Our party hasn't always remained true to that philosophy, but Log Cabin is working hard to bring the GOP back to those core principles.

1. Equality won't be achieved without more Republican support, so it's critical to give money to inclusive R's at all levels of government.

2. Work still remains to make the GOP more inclusive, but there are fair-minded R's across America who should be supported for their courage in stepping forward as advocates for basic fairness.

3. If all gay money goes to Democrats, LGBT people will be taken for granted. A one-party strategy hasn't benefited other communities, and it won't benefit our movement.

4. The best way to change the GOP is from within, so it's important to support organizations that are working to make the Republican Party more inclusive.

5. The Democratic Party doesn't represent the views of millions of LGBT voters. People who agree with the GOP philosophy of government should invest in working to make the party more inclusive.

6. It's critical to have LGBT people in both parties, or we're putting all our eggs in one basket. Corporate America is smart enough to understand this fact, and our movement should be too.

7. Smaller government is the best way to maximize personal freedom. LGBT people should help get the GOP back to its small-government roots. That will keep the Republican Party from focusing on divisive social issues.
