The horror of Sunday’s terrorist attack in Orlando at a gay nightclub has sent shockwaves throughout the LGBT community and forced many to change their support from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump.
On Reddit, a gay man who lost a friend in the terror attack at Pulse said that he was never more ready to see Trump take office and wanted to volunteer for the billionaire’s campaign.
“I’m shaken, I’m a mess, I’m broken, but I’ve never been more determined for a leader to actually take charge and make a change, how do i get started. How do I help this man lead us into a safer country?” 4yyyy wrote.
Another gay man posted that he was gay and liberal, but had enough of political correctness and is voting for Trump for his honesty.
“Never thought this would happen, but Trump is honestly the only candidate anymore speaking his mind and not pandering for a living. I guess I’m a gay centipede?” triplebro wrote.
The political correctness coming out of the left and their ability to blame gun owners instead of radical jihadists infuriated another gay man who said he officially joined the Trump train.
“I am a gay man and this disgusting incident has persuaded me to join the Trump train!” Snowduckling wrote. “I think it’s horrible that adherents of Islam are allowed to spread their hate without any criticism and with tons of censorship. What we have clearly isn’t working and we need a change. Hillary and Sanders will just roll over and put out the welcome mat for more Islamic influence and terror. With Trump we at least stand a chance.”
“Yesterday I learned that the left doesn’t give a f*** about me, they won’t do anything because it’s not PC and might hurt someone’s feelings,” he continued. “It’s about time that I jumped ship. Personally, I know that I’d rather be denied service from a bakery than be riddled with bullets during a hate crime performed by a crazy radical Islamic terrorist.”
President Obama’s inability to say “radical Islam” infuriated another gay man who flipped to the Trump train.
“I’ve been waxing and waining, but when Obama doesn’t cite Islam as the cause behind the Florida shooting and news sources try to edit that fact out, fuck it, I’m done,” cteavin wrote. “Trump 2016!”
Other gay men took to Twitter to announce their support for the billionaire.

The Republican nominee’s embrace of the LGBT community on certain issues such as transgender bathrooms and his commitment to protect them from radical jihadists may be they key to expanding the Republican coalition.
