Vice talks to the most important people in the contemporary American political scene, and sometimes to the least important (who are very special, nonetheless).

"Jimmy LaSalvia"

September 23, 2010
GOProud is Jimmy LaSalvia’s answer to the approximately 1.2 million voters who identify as gay and are, in his words, “certainly not liberal.” In this discussion with host Eddy Moretti, LaSalvia recalls his formative political years growing up in a military family at the peak of the Cold War and attending college in South Dakota’s Black Hills. This upbringing instilled him with a lifelong affinity for the “Libertarian mountain man” ideal espoused by Barry Goldwater and Dick Cheney. (The latter’s photo hangs in the GOProud offices in lieu of a religious icon.)
