U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, a far-right Republican known for her homophobic and transphobic rhetoric, is dating a man who co-owns a bar that has hosted LGBTQ+ events.
The arts group did not identify the couple, but surveillance video obtained by a CNN affiliate shows Boebert and a companion leaving the theater.
And Boebert owned up to her behavior in a social media post, saying, “I plead guilty to laughing and singing too loud!”
The man with Boebert has now been identified as Gallagher, co-owner of Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar in Aspen.
Social media posts show Hooch has hosted LGBTQ+ events, such as a women’s party for Aspen Gay Ski Week and a drag performance called “A Winter Wonderland Burlesque & Drag Show.”.
Boebert, who is in her second term representing a Colorado district in Congress, is known for denouncing drag shows and everything else associated with the LGBTQ+ community.
In May, Boebert filed for divorce from her husband of 18 years, Jason Boebert. »
