Gay Trump supporters denied entry into Charlotte Pride Parade

From Fox5NY: 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.

“For a group of people to claim to want tolerance, acceptance, and give it to every single person you can imagine to give it to, for them to sit back and judge me for exercising my right as an American to choose my leader without judgment is hypocritical,” Talbert said.

A spokesperson for the organization said in written statement, Charlotte Pride reserves the right to decline participation at our events to groups or organizations which do not reflect the mission, vision and values of our organization, as is acknowledged in our parade rules and regulations by all groups at the time of their parade application. In the past, we have made similar decisions to decline participation from other organizations espousing anti-LGBTQ religious or public policy stances.

Charlotte Pride envisions a world in which LGBTQ people are affirmed, respected and included in the full social and civic life of their local communities, free from fear of any discrimination, rejection, and prejudice.  

Charlotte Pride invites all individuals, groups, organizations and causes which share our values to join our community’s celebration of the LGBTQ community, history, arts and culture during the Charlotte Pride Festival and Parade, Aug. 26-27, 2017.”

Talbert said, “I don’t judge them for how they vote. I believe men and women died to give us that right to choose our own leader. They don’t extend the same courtesy to me being a gay Republican.

Talbert said he plans to file a lawsuit against Charlotte Pride for discrimination. Here’s the link to his ‘Deplorable Pride’ website: where he’s raising money for lawyer’s fees.

  1. This just goes to show that, once again, the Left is all about ideology, not about their supposed “caring” for LGBTs, women, or blacks — as demonstrated time and time again by their vilification of conservative LGBTs, women & blacks.

    Taking pride in one’s perversion diminishes the value or regard for pride of…..well….almost every thing.

    Lot of idiocy here. We fight for equality and they enjoy all of the benefits, but we don’t need to have those self hating idiots at the party-phuck them. They are lucky they have us.


  5. Why would anyone want to fight to be included in such an intolerant group? They’re saying, “You don’t belong.” I’d take that as a gift — and say to myself, “They’re right, I don’t.”
    Join the Log Cabin Republicans (if they’re still a group), or form your own more flamboyant group and do a separate parade if that’s your thing… But don’t fight for the “right” to join a group that despises what you stand for and believe in.

  6. Tolerant only to what they will tolerate, open minded only to their own thoughts, their evil is good and just but anothers is abhorrent and sickening.

  8. The city in which this parade is being held needs to SHUT IT DOWN, if some people are not allowed to participate due to their political affiliation, then the public streets should not be made available to them. I can understand why “Anti’s” would not be allowed due to fear of physical conflict, but this is absurd.
