9 Gay Men and Women Explain the Reasons They Voted for Trump

It's a controversial political choice, to say the least…

While many members of the LGBTIA+ community are still rightfully bewildered by the election results, and nervous about the prospect of Donald Trump’s impending presidency, not every queer person is worried. In fact, some of our fellow community members actually voted for Trump, and were proud to let the world know on Instagram using the hashtag #GaysForTrump.

You read that right. Despite all of the bigoted rhetoric that his campaign has stirred up during the election cycle, and the notorious anti-LGBT record of his Vice Presidential pick Mike Pence (who still believes in conversion therapy and doesn't think trans people should be allowed to use public bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity), there are gay people who still believed Trump was the best person to become the leader of the United States.

Here are 9 of those #GaysForTrump, explaining the reasoning behind their controversial vote.

1. “Women can fake orgasms and make up rape claims but not even a skilled actress can pretend Hillary Clinton is trust worthy…Only one candidate will preserve your freedoms and western ideals." @milo.yiannopoulos

2.“This gay man voted for Donald Trump. I cast my vote for the candidate who I believe will keep me safe, prosperous, and equal (yes, equal).” — @campbellllsoup

 

3. “The real issue at hand is hypocrisy…Hillary, you cannot be a champion for gays. You cannot be a champion for women – I am a proud gay man voting for Trump.”@scottpresler

 

4. “Let’s come together [under Trump] to secure our borders and remain a sovereign nation while we rebuild our military, slash taxes and regulations, repeal Obamacare, and strive to have our economic ROAR once more.” @scoobyfit

5. “We believe there are hubs of illegal, primarily Arab migrants who are being let in deliberately and we know Hillary wants to let a minimum of 600k in after she’s elected. You can expect these numbers to grow over time…I urge America to wake up”@beauti7ulscars

6. “Trump will help give us a bright future. Hillary will burn the world down…Liberals like her have given us every single problem we face in this country. They have given us Obamacare. They have given us ISIS. They have given us all of these problems…and they can’t fix it."@nestormotojr

8. “I firmly believe what this man stands for. The raw unjaded version of it…if Trump is victorious it will pave the way for conservatives encouraging growth wealth safety and free speech for all. And that is only the beginning.”@pfletcherx
