Gays for Trump – Umm…You’re Not Welcome!

(CNN)An LGBT group says it was denied a float at a gay pride parade in Charlotte, North Carolina, because it supports Donald Trump.

Deplorable Pride’s entry would have had all the hallmarks of a pride parade float: drag queens, patriotic colors and even Uncle Sam.
But it would also display something different — Trump’s campaign message, “Make America Great Again” — and feature a dancer dressed as Melania Trump.
And that, says Deplorable Pride, is what organizers had a problem with.
“The LGBT community is known for including everyone,” Derek Van Cleve, co-founder of the group, told CNN. “Pretty sad that the organizers for this parade have decided not to include both parties.”
Three weeks after it sent in its application, the group received a rejection email regarding the August festival and parade, Van Cleve said.
“This message is to confirm that we have received your application for entry in the 2017 Charlotte Pride Parade,” the message read. “Unfortunately, we are not able to approve your application.”
