Since the disco era of the 70s, the Village People have been a mainstay on dance floors, in arenas, and virtually every other gathering.

Pete Buttigieg Perfectly Shames Donald Trump After Trump Urges Rush Limbaugh Not to Apologize for Homophobic Remarks
Far-Right radio host Rush Limbaugh received widespread backlash earlier this month after laughing at the idea of gay South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 Presidential contender Pete Buttigieg kissing his husband on a debate stage next to "Mr. Man," President Donald Trump.
Despite the backlash, Limbaugh recently revealed that Trump himself called and told him not to apologize for his words about Buttigieg, leaving some to question whether Trump was sincere when he said recently that he wouldn't have a problem with a gay President.
President Donald Trump awarded far-Right radio host Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom at his State of the Union address earlier this month.
Days later, Limbaugh made even more headlines when he scoffed at the idea that gay South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 presidential contender Pete Buttigieg would kiss his husband on a debate stage next to "Mr. Man" Donald Trump.

Congressional Republicans Are Pressuring Amazon to Start Selling Banned Conversion Therapy Books Again

Mike Pence Just Defended Trump's Policy Not to Allow U.S. Embassies Abroad to Fly the Pride Flag, Because of Course He Did
Vice President Mike Pence is infamous for his anti-LGBTQ positions. He once sought to divert HIV funding in favor of conversion therapy, and once said LGBTQ people posed a threat of societal collapse.
So it may not come as a surprise that Pence rushed to the defense of the Trump administration after it wouldn't approve US embassies abroad to fly rainbow flags in celebration of LGBTQ Pride month.
