Living in Denmark, I'm a member of and would vote for Enhedslisten (merger of some socialist and communist parties), which supports LGBT rights and got 6.7% of votes in the last election. I often consider supporting some of the smaller communist parties outside the parlament which seem to have more solid communist principles but it'd almost definitely mean no influence for the vote so I don't think I would do that.

I think any person who supports a party that wants to reverse the progress of LGBT rights is a disgrace, whether they're LGBT themselves or not.

In Ireland at the moment, all party's support Gay Marriage and it is to be implemented into the constitution by 2016. However if you want strong LGBT advocates you would want to be voting for the Socialists and Sinn Fein. I myself am a lefty and feel many to the right who support equal marriage such as Cameron in the UK are populist. The right being conservative is too bogged down to anti-progressive in my view to safeguard LGBT rights.

Well said. Cameron might have backed gay marriage but he was one of few Conservatives that did. We can't be sure that his successor will be quite so supportive. I'll be voting Labour in May.
Don't think about doing it tomorrow. You won't do it tomorrow. Do it today.

I make semi-annual trips to the border to hand out taxpayer funded partial birth abortions to unaccompanied Central American welfare queens.
