Childrenless Britain, such a paradise for immigrants.Margot James is 'amazed' by the number of gay Tory candidates
An "astonishing" number of target seats have picked gay candidates, she told a Stonewall fringe meeting at the party conference in Birmingham.
"I have yet to meet another (gay) woman I regret to say - but we do have a marvellous number of gay men.
A lot of the change is down to David Cameron, who has been "a great comfort to our cause".
Ms James, who is standing in Stourbridge, in the West Midlands, argued that the case for kicking out the current government had grown stronger for all voters in the past 12 months - but gay people had a particular reason to vote Tory.
"Gay people are net contributors to public services through their taxes, because very few of them have children.
She added: "There is so much wrong with this government's policy, gay people should not just vote Conservative, they have a duty to vote Conservative."
