Washington D.C. activist, Chris Barron, formed “Gays for Trump” in May 2016, and has intensified the project in the wake of the “terrorist” attack in Orlando, Fla.
Barron cites Trump’s statements after the Orlando attack as a reason to support Trump, arguing that Trump will be better-suited to protect us from acts of terrorism than Hillary Clinton.
Before entering politics, Trump allegedly celebrated the same-sex union of singer Elton John. Barron quotes Trump saying, “I’m very happy for them. If two people dig each other, they dig each other.”
Barron was an early member of Log Cabin Republicans, who left and founded GOPRIDE, a more “conservative” group than LCR. GOPRIDE has since been disbanded.
