Openly anti-​gay Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann used Katy Perry’s pro-​gay #1 hit song, “Firework,” as her theme song at the ultra-​conservative Right Online conference over the weekend. Perry’s “Firework” video is infused with self-​acceptance stories, includes a scene of two young men kissing. Perry’s other hit songs include, “Ur So Gay,” and, “I Kissed a Girl.”
