Why some gays are Tories,

and what's up with the forthcoming Ontario election...


Courtyard Marriott, 475 Yonge Street

(one block north of College subway station;

enter off Wood Street)

5:45 pm to 9 pm - Monday, March 12, 2018



These are certainly interesting times for Ontario. On the one hand, we have a Premier with historically low approval ratings and a Liberal Party with a lot of negative baggage. On the other hand, the official opposition Progressive Conservatives are, at least for now, in turmoil. All of which makes it hard to predict which of the two will win the provincial election on June 7. So never was there a better time to meet gays active in conservative politics at the provincial and federal levels, and to take an in-depth look at such issues as:  

  • Who are LGBTory and what can the Ontario Progressive Conservatives offer gay people?
  • The pros and cons of a conservative approach to politics in Ontario and in Canada
  • The current leadership race for the conservative party in Ontario
  • ​The Ontario party's treatment of Patrick Brown, and Patrick Brown's reaction; the value--and the danger--of the MeToo movement on social media


  • Doc von Lichtenberg, co-founder and President of LGBTory
  • Benjamin Dichter, co-founder and Chairman of LGBTory
  • Eric Lorenzen, VP Communications for LGBTory (Eric is a past member of The Fraternity)

RSVP to meet@thefraternity.org by Friday, March 9 (for meeting on Monday, March 12).


Cost: Pay at door by cash, cheque or credit card; $39 for members and their guests; $42 for visitors; $20 for students
