Prior to the Presidential election Texas native and registered Republican Kelly Clarkson, who also loves and supports her LGBT friends, broke ranks with her party, very specifically over the Romney / Ryan tickets antigay stance, and endorsed President Obama. Around the same time Meghan McCain, outspoken Republican and daughter of former Republican Presidential nominee John McCain, announced she would fight for marriage equality as part of the Young Conservatives for Freedom to Marry. Since they are both accomplished, and let’s face it, in our estimation, hot Republican women who support LGBT folks, that got us thinking about other hot Republicans who love us. Here they are.

Shannen Doherty

Shannen Doherty’s been a gay icon since she played Heather Duke in the 1988 cult classic Heathers before she moved on to playing beloved angst teen Brenda Walsh in Beverly Hills 90210. In an interview with the Huffington Post this past May Shannen was unequivocal in her support of marriage equality.

“I believe that we live in a free country -- or at least we're supposed to be living in a free country,” Shannen said. “Two men, two women should be able to get married. It's not about your sex, it's about love and commitment. No state has the right to tell someone, ‘No, this is not legal in the eyes of the state.’ That is the most ridiculous statement in the world when you then go and preach that this is a free country. That is mind boggling to me.”
