#LGBTQHatesTrumpParty is dragging Trump through the dirt on Twitter
Most of the LGBTQ community has had it with Donald Trump.
Why? Well, it all started with this tweet:
Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2016
Along with his comments about "the gays" supporting him over Hillary Clinton:
Trump: Ask the gays what they think
The Gays: Sashay Away.https://t.co/20etxy9ZJQ

Hi, Rex Huppke with the Chicago Tribune, I'm trying to reach a spokesperson for "the gays." pic.twitter.com/qWpO2kBbcy

Well, Sage Alston, aka @MADBLACKTWINK was fed up with Trump exploiting the LGBTQ community in order to push his anti-Muslim agenda. He said with the recent events in Orlando, Trump is just pretending to support the LGBTQ community, though he never has before.
Then, #LGBTQHatesTrumpParty was born:
Y'all only care about violence against the community when the gunman was Muslim . Stop exploiting us #LGBTQHatesTrumpParty

Looks like "the gays" have spoken.
But there are a few in the LGBTQ community who aren't attending the #LGBTQHatesTrumpParty:

#LGBTQHatesTrumpParty Wait, I thought love overcomes hate or something?

The national conversation about homophobia (and Islamophobia) is only just beginning in the wake of the Orlando tragedy. Who knows where it will go from here.
