Tolerance alert: Gay Trump supporters denied entry into Charlotte Pride Parade

CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46) - A group says ‘Charlotte Pride’ is pushing them out of the Gay Pride Parade because they support President Trump.

"I’m very proud of my country, proud of my president, and was once proud of my community," said Brian Talbert, who said he’s proud to be gay and proud to be a Trump supporter.

His truck has a Trump-Pence bumper sticker and 'Not a liberal' sign on the back window.

"I’m very proud of my vote. I don't regret my vote. I will vote for Donald Trump again. I'm proud of my president. I don't think I should be vilified because I’m proud of a U.S. president as an American."

Talbert, a member of "Gays for Trump, which is not affiliated with the "Gays for Trump" based in Greensboro, NC, said he and a fellow gay Trump supporter sent in an application to Charlotte Pride so they could have a float in this year's Charlotte Pride Parade.

"It was going to be fun. We wanted to be energetic. We wanted to show that we weren't the racist, bigot, misogynistic…We wanted to show that we are Americans, love our country and our president. We wanted to be there to celebrate gay pride. Everything fell into place except being able to celebrate who I am," he said.

Talbert said Charlotte Pride sent him an email denying his application for a float.

3. Well these gays are obviously

the wrong kind of gays.

There is a lot of that not-so subtle bigotry and racism in the New Democratic party today.

7. Hell it is how they treat PoC

who won't vote for the neoliberal cultural Marxists and socialists. We are not 'real liberals'. We are just RWNJ's. We are fakes, phonies, and every other fucking name in the book. I have dealt with it since the 1980's. They are never going to change.

8. So gay Trump supporters are discriminating against other gay Trump supporters....

 

"Talbert, a member of "Gays for Trump, which is not affiliated with the "Gays for Trump" based in Greensboro, NC, said he and a fellow gay Trump supporter sent in an application to Charlotte Pride so they could have a float in this year's Charlotte Pride Parade."

But somehow it's the Democratic party's fault????

9. Morning sunshine!

Charlotte is NOT Greensboro, but I can see how my lovely little stalker could get confused on that.
