A “Gays for Trump” rally which took place on Saturday, July 1st at the Ellipse section of the National Mall near the White House drew a whopping 18 people.
The Make America Great Again Free Speech Rally was organized by Gays for Trump President Peter Boykin.
Boykin said they were certain that each of those attending the event represents thousands of others, both gay and straight, who are conservative, loyal Americans that deeply believe Donald Trump will provide the leadership needed to get the nation back on track.
“Make American Great Again is not just a political slogan,” Boykin told the gathering. ”It’s an American one which has been shared by many great people in this nation no matter what their race, gender or sexual orientation.”
“It makes me proud when I hear those words and to live by that code and to not only attempt to MAGA for me but to MAGA for everyone,” Boykin said. “For if we truly Make America Great Again then we can bless the world in MAGA, which is to make the earth great again.”
Others speaking at the rally included Don Lime, a radio talk show host from Monterey Bay, California, motivational speaker Lisa Christiansen and Los Angeles conservative activist and former Air Force officer Jack Cummins, who called it a “true blessing” that Trump has become president. Cummins criticized Democrats for calling on the U.S. to advance democracy throughout the world.
He said the U.S. was not founded on democracy but was founded instead as a “constitutional republic.”
“Don’t say we need to advance democracy,” he said. “Say we need to advance liberty.”
In concluding remarks as the micro-rally drew to a close, Boykin – amid a few cheers from the attendees – said he was tired of being told that only Democrats support LGBT rights.
“I’m proud to be a gay conservative for Trump,” he said. “I am not against LGBT. I am not against transgender.”
