2020 Democrats campaign to be “gay’ choice


With PRIDE month upon us, it seems as if every 2020 Democratic presidential candidate is trying to “out gay” one another, using the LGBT community to stake their equality claims.

President Trump is the first Republican president to acknowledge PRIDE month, and now Democrats are trying to win over this important voting demographic that makes up a large part of their party’s base of support.

Of all the candidates in the crowded field, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is openly gay and married, could have an advantage, but that remains to be seen.
