Yes, embarrassingly, there are several LGBTQ Republican sponsored events, including the “Deplora-Ball,” scheduled to take place in D.C. during the inauguration.
Gregory T. Angelo, president of the Log Cabin Republicans will also host an LGBT “T” Party on Saturday, Jan. 21, the day following the Trump inauguration, at the Capitol Hill Club. Angelo told the Washington Blade,
“We are having what we are playfully branding a T Party, with T, of course, standing for Trump.”
Cute. I mean, gross.
A North Carolina-based organization called Gays for Trump is organizing an Inaugural DeploraBall Gala on the inaugural evening of Jan. 20. It will be held at the Bolger Center Hotel in Potomac, MD. One of Facebook postings says,
“Come one, come all to our Inaugural DeploraBall extravaganza!
With top-notch performers, open bar, 3 course gourmet plated dinner and an enthusiastic crowd, it’s sure to be a good time.
This special event is open to EVERYONE on the Trump Train and is graciously being hosted by the Gays for Trump organization.”
Gross. I mean, disgusting.
Log Cabin Republicans chose not to endorse Trump during the election campaign, but the group released a statement on the day following Trump’s victory.
“While we’ve had occasional differences with Mr. Trump throughout his unique campaign for our nation’s highest office, Log Cabin Republicans never hesitated to offer praise when it was due. Mr. Trump’s unprecedented and repeated overtures to ‘the LGBTQ community’ were invariably lauded by our organization, and we look forward to seeing those words turn to action in a Trump administration.
As the country’s original and largest organization of LGBT Republicans and straight allies, we stand united behind our next president, optimistic for the future, and committed to ‘Make America Great Again’!”
Disgusting. I mean, moronic.
