gaywrites: Get our flag out of your hands, you monster. Context: Donald Trump took a (upside-down?) rainbow flag that reads “LGBT for Trump” from an audience member at a rally in Colorado and paraded it around onstage so everyone could see it. Here’s a reminder of why Donald Trump is a godawful excuse for a person, let alone a presidential candidate – and these are only the LGBT-related reasons, not even addressing his unending racism, xenophobia, misogyny and the other bigotries upon which he’s built his entire campaign:Trump has made an effort to pander to the LGBTQ community throughout the course of his presidential campaign. He claimed during his convention speech that he “will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology.”Yet the 2016 Republican party platform has been criticized as the “most anti-LGBT” in the party’s history, and Trump is in no way a friend to queer people. He has said that he would “strongly consider” appointing judges to overturn SCOTUS’ same-sex marriage ruling, and also stated that he opposes same-sex marriage as an institution. He’s also flip-flopped on rights and protections when it comes to transgender people.And let’s not forget that Trump’s running mate Mike Pence has a rich history of LGBTQ intolerance, including opposing foreign governments’ efforts to decriminalize homosexuality, opposing repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and leading a crusade against LGBT rights as governor of Indiana. I hate him I hate him I hate him and I hate how much energy and space I am using to hate him. November 9 cannot come soon enough. : LGBT fot TRUTA gaywrites: Get our flag out of your hands, you monster. Context: Donald Trump took a (upside-down?) rainbow flag that reads “LGBT for Trump” from an audience member at a rally in Colorado and paraded it around onstage so everyone could see it. Here’s a reminder of why Donald Trump is a godawful excuse for a person, let alone a presidential candidate – and these are only the LGBT-related reasons, not even addressing his unending racism, xenophobia, misogyny and the other bigotries upon which he’s built his entire campaign:Trump has made an effort to pander to the LGBTQ community throughout the course of his presidential campaign.
