“Gay teacher Nikos Giannopoulos` displayed his LGBTQ pride as he sported a rainbow pin and clutched a lacy fan in an official photo with President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump. And now the Rhode Island teacher of the year`s bold stand for LGBTQ rights has gotten global attention after the image went viral on Facebook.”
Donald Trump may be many things, but he`s not homophobic. In the entertainment business, where Trump has thrived for decades, there are more gays than you can shake a feather boa at, I`m sure he`s seen more flamboyant characters than a guy sporting a rainbow pin and clutching a lacy fan.
As a matter of fact Trump told the gay teacher that he looked very stylish. I know how Trump rolls, it wouldn`t have been out of character for him to exclaim: Work it girlfriend!
Although Trump isn`t homophobic some members of his administration, most notably Vice President Mike Pence, aren`t very gay friendly. Had Giannopoulos posed with Pence in all his gay splendor, he would have attempted to cast the gay demons out of him.
Kudos to Giannopoulos for flying his freak flag high in the Oval Office, you need a little bit of color to counterbalance the Orange Menace.
