On October 4 there will be a debate between the nominees for Vice President, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine and Governor of Indiana Mike Pence. Whilst this debate won’t draw as many views as the one between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, from the LGBT viewpoint this is an important debate and is great opportunity for the LGBT community to highlight how vicious Pence has been to them and how much worse it will be with him as a Vice President. Pence has been referred to as ‘the most anti-gay candidate to run on a National GOP ticket’. The debate would be a great time to make yourself heard to oppose Mike Pence’s bigotry that he tries to hide in the name of Religion.
Governor Pence has shown how staunchly anti gay he is for years including enacting laws that discriminate against them. I wanted to initially write a regular blog post talking about all the terrible things he’s said and done, but that would just be reworking other people’s work. So, instead I will lay out the main bullet points in images that I would like to be shared on the night of the debate with the hashtag #PenceHomophobiaTour2016
Hate Crimes Bill
Being Gay a choice
Don’t ask don’t tell
Many thanks for any of the images that you share at the time of the debate. Please remember to use the Hashtag #PenceHomophobiaTour2016
