Disgraced former representative Aaron Schock and former US ambassador Richard Grenell (& Trump toadie) have been named as the guests of honor at a “Pride” gathering of “LGBT” (they leave off the Q+) Trump supporters.
Hosted by the Log Cabin Republicans, OutSpoken Pride in Nashville Sept. 10, 11 & 12th, is gathering of gay MAGA fans for panel discussions, (unvaxed?) parties and Sunday (drag?) brunch.
Perfect that Schock is headlining this head-scratching, pro-Trump, LGBTQ event because while in Congress he:
- voted against lifting the ban on LGBTQ people in the military
- voted against extending hate crime protections to include sexual orientation and gender identity
- voted for Defence of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as between a man and a woman
Following a scandal involving his alleged misuse of public and campaign funds, Schock resigned in 2015. He hit the news again and again and again when FINALLY he came out as gay after posting pics with shirtless hunks at Coachella and later being caught shoving dollar bills down a male stripper’s underwear at gay bar in Mexico City.
Schock just turned 40 and thanked followers,
“who have stood by me through my successes and failures. I’m looking forward to the next 40 years as I continue to grow, continue to give back, and continue to make this little planet a bigger, better place to live.”
OUTSpoken, the mouthpiece of Log Cabin Republicans, used a photo of him on Instagram (below) as representative of LGBT(no Q) Republicans.
Clueless, cis, white, entitled, male? (Check, check, check, check, check!)
Richard Grenell (Trump’s unpopular ambassador to Germany) will be on hand as well to fill out this creep show. He is a founder of OUTSpoken and was recently found to have undisclosed financial ties to Hungary’s far-right government, one of the most homophobic regimes in the world. He is constantly tweeting about how great Trump is and how much Biden sucks.
Bisexual musician Ricky Rebel is scheduled (God, I hope they don’t let him perform…) Ricky had his 15 minutes at the 2019 Grammies when he was photographed wearing a MAGA-themed outfit. In a video posted YouTube, Rebel said
“Donald Trump, to me, represents alpha energy… I’m not sorry for anything. I do not apologize for voting for who I wanted to vote for.“
Other LGBTQ Republican D-listers scheduled are the out, Black, gay, Trumper Christian Walker (son of football star Herschel Walker) Christian, right-wing podcaster Spencer Klavan who will be performing as “The Preacher” (huh?), the “Brokeback Patriot” (I have no idea?) and the transphobic lesbian YouTuber Arielle Scarcella, who believes gender fluid and non-binary people don’t exist because they aren’t Trump supporters.
Um, no thanks –I’d rather eat glass.
