Organizers of the Charlotte Gay Pride Parade booted a conservative group from participating this year because they support President Trump.
The intolerant organizers sent the group a letter this week.
The Charlotte Gay Community claims to be “united.”

FOX 5 NY reported:
A group says ‘Charlotte Pride’ is pushing them out of the Gay Pride Parade because they support President Trump.
“I’m very proud of my country, proud of my president, and was once proud of my community,” said Brian Talbert, who said he’s proud to be gay and proud to be a republican.
His truck has a Trump-Pence bumper sticker and ‘Not a liberal’ sign on the back window.
“I’m very proud of my vote. I don’t regret my vote. I will vote for Donald Trump again. I’m proud of my president. I don’t think I should be vilified because I’m proud of a U.S. president as an American.”
Talbert said he and a fellow gay republican sent in an application to Charlotte Pride so they could have a float in this year’s Charlotte Pride Parade.
“It was going to be fun. We wanted to be energetic. We wanted to show that we weren’t the racist, bigot; misogynistic…We wanted to show that we are Americans, love our country and our president. We wanted to be there to celebrate gay pride. Everything fell into place except being able to celebrate who I am,” he said.
Talbert said Charlotte Pride sent him an email denying his application for a float.
“For a group of people to claim to want tolerance, acceptance, and give it to every single person you can imagine to give it to, for them to sit back and judge me for exercising my right as an American to choose my leader without judgment is hypocritical,” Talbert said.
