The North Carolina-based group Gays for Trump is playing a lead role in organizing a rally and march in support of President Donald Trump scheduled to begin at noon on Saturday, March 4, at the Washington Monument in D.C.

Gays for Trump President Peter Boykin said the D.C. event, which will include a short rally at the site of the Washington Monument followed by a march to the White House, is not a specifically gay event but organizers expect many LGBT people to be participating.

“It is for everybody but you will see a lot of rainbow flags,” Boykin told the Washington Blade. “D.C.-area Gays for Trump will definitely be attending.”

He said organizers have obtained a U.S. Park Service permit for the rally and D.C. police are expected to escort march participants to the White House along 17th Street, N.W. The crowd is expected to end up at or around Lafayette Park, Boykin said.

According to a Feb. 26 press release issued by organizers of the event, “March4Trump” rallies and marches will also take place on March 4 in other cities throughout the country in addition to D.C., including Virginia Beach, Va.; Raleigh, N.C.; Las Vegas and Reno, Nev.; Berkley, Calif.; and New York City.

Singer and songwriter Joy Villa will be a keynote speaker at the D.C. rally at the Washington Monument, the press release says. She will be accompanied by clothing designer Andre Soriano, who designed the Make America Great Again gown that Villa wore at the Grammy Awards ceremony last month in Los Angeles, the release says.

“She, along with the March4Trump Organization, is seeking to unite the nation together in support of our newly elected president,” organizers said in a statement. “The goal of these marches and rallies are to peacefully unite all people,” the statement says. “March 4Trump is seeking only individuals who wish to spread love rather than hate, unite rather than divide, and support rather than resistance,” it says.

The statement adds, “This is a peaceful assembly. Please do not impede traffic, litter, vandalize, or do anything else illegal and unbefitting…Any violators will be asked to leave and turned over to authorities when appropriate.”

  • A perfect example of masochism.

  • In other words, it is a match for Trump supporters. And the 3 “gays for Trump” people who show up will take a picture of the few dozen or hundreds that show up, send it in to the gay press and claim that everybody there was a “gay for Trump”

  • “March 4Trump is seeking only individuals who wish to spread love rather than hate, unite rather than divide, and support rather than resistance,” it says.- Unfortunately/sadly they don’t have a President who believes in what they are saying.

  • I’m trans…so I suppose I don’t count. I also work for a county government agency. Last week I received a letter, back dated to 1February, denying insurance coverage,for any surgeries involved in transitioning. As a pre-op FTM, in a rural area, with a history of polycysitc disease, I may need a hysterectomy soon, or bilateral mastectomies. Since I am on T, which I have always paid for myself, with a diagnosis of GID, doctors may shy away from valid medical help lest they be seen as facilitating a transition. The operations can be refused by my insurance if the doctors so decide. Also, I have an evangelical landlady. It’s a small town, so, rumor is more likely to be believed than anything else. I have no protections. So, in the closet I firmly stay. And, the woman I proposed to…we no longer know what our future will bring.
    But y’all go ahead…march for The Bloated One….

    • Maybe you should have been saving your pennies instead of expecting everyone else to pay your bills.

      • That’s so cute how you tell someone who needs healthcare that he shouldn’t have spent so much god damned money on food. I also loved how you just assume you know what his financial situation is. You’re some kind of special.

        • Sorry snowflake I did not mention food now did I?

          • Food is a staple of bills to pay.

          • Maybe she should shut up and be happy with the body she was born with instead of pumping it full of hormones and wanting to have parts removed and added.

          • Maybe you should learn about the biological facts of being born trans.

          • Maybe you should follow your own advice and STFU and stop posting your right-wing BS! Milo was emasculated and your president is showing signs of dementia!

          • There, there Mark. We know who you are now that we’ve logged your IP address and run a traceroute back to your ISP. If you keep up this fag-trolling, someone is going to tell your mother what you’ve been up to.

          • There, there Leon. You go right ahead. You can find my mom in a cemetery. Next thing you know Milo will be knocking at your door with his camera crew.

          • You love the word snowflake don’t you missy? Is that a standard conservative word you people use?

            Why don’t you swish on out to Breitbart?

          • I guess mark would not be in support of any disease causing the need for surgery. Everyone should be happy with the body they were given, Says him. I hope mark doesn’t get prostate cancer.

          • Well, Miss Mark, like her Mistress Milo and similar Alt right fringe that have infected our community like a blight are already much like a disease to our LGBT community! Like a cancer they try and tear us down and undermine all we’ve achieved. They spread and try to destroy all in their path. But They self-destruct like all our enemies do sooner or later.

            Milo was taken down, like Dennis Hastert and Mark Foley. These Pedophiles got their comeuppance. Sooner or later Miss Mark will, too! Given the path Trump is taking with his outrageous tweets, he will eventually go down also!

            Hachett refuses to accept the reality that without LGBT liberal activists, she would likely be done in by AIDS or in jail for sodomy or both. Look at Roy Cohn with all his extremist right-wing nastiness couldn’t escape getting infected and falling victim!

          • Is that Mark “FootInAss” Hatchett? The same one from Virginia Beach High? Remember when you blew the WHOLE football team? That was awesome!

      • No one pays my bills but me. Please note the second sentence. “I work” You can’t read. You can’t stay on topic. At least you can spell, so you aren’t a complete stereotype.

    • My response, you’re trans, you do count. I hope the medical problems turn out well for you.

  • I am a senior gay Republican here in Libturd Land (aka California) who proudly supports President Trump. I actually voted for Barry Hussein Obozo twice because I was sick of the lying, globalist, NeoCon regime of Bush/Cheney. The Demoncrap Party is imploding fast. They lost to Trump because of Crooked HilLIARy and ONLY Crooked HilLIARy, even with her massive election fraud. Yet, they continue to blame the Russians. Old and senile Nancy Pelosi seems to think that George W is still president. Mad Maxine Waters actually said that Trump helped Putin invade Korea. Wtf? It’s all on video, folks. Then there’s lying Pocahontas Warren, who is in a special class of nutjob. The corrupt “mainstream” media is still the bag with all of them, spreading fake news and trying to censor social media. And of course, we all know now that Obozo is a closeted gay Kenyan moozlim who is secretly doing all he can to sabotage the presidency of Donald Trump. He is a traitor. The Trump Train rolls on with a mission to Make America Great Again for everyone, including the LGBTQ community.

  • They say the will be rainbow flags which s meaningless since if they will wave Russian flags proves they will wave anything, But nice try.

    • Why are you lying?

      • Why do you suck Trump balls?

        • Maybe because She can’t suck Miss Milo’s balls anymore because they were “hatchetted” off once she was exposed as a pedophile!

          Do you think Miss Milo is auditioning to sing cultura soprano now that who voice is so much higher? I picture her singing Mozart’s Queen of the Night!

      • Oh, Miss Markie, are you still trolling the Blade? Miss Milo’s balls were hatchetted off recently as she was exposed to be a member of NAMBLA! Why are you still working?

        All she maybe fit to do now is sing cultura soprano. Have her try Mozart’s Queen of the Night!

        As for your president, he gets more embarrassing and ridiculous by the day. Now he’s claim Obama wiretapped his home. He may have early stage dementia!

  • I CANNOT believe this.

  • Congratulations gays. Thanks for supporting our great new president.

    • Great?! He continues to prove himself a huge embarrassment and joke. Today’s most recent rant about having his home wiretapped by Obama is as outrageous as saying 3.0 million popular votes that went to Hillary were illegal.

      Not sure if he’s just a babbling boob or has a serious mental problem. Does he have a brain tumor or perhaps early stage dementia? He’s not fit! Time will reveal the truth one day. Reagan had Alzheimer’s after all!

  • I am deeply concerned about Texas, Arkansas and 20 other states trying to destroy my marriage, something none of them had anything to do with. And stop all LGBTQ citizens of America from getting and keeping our civil rights. This action is deplorable, unthinkable, till now, as I’m reading their plans to change my life and take my dreams. Our anniversary is tomorrow, March 4. We will be married 2 years after a 30 year engagement we thought would never be followed by marriage. How can you help us and all the others who have put their faith in our system.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mark Cichewicz & Michael Grillo

    • Congratulations on your Wedding Anniversary! Don’t let others ruin it for you! Having someone you love in your life is a gift. Enjoy every moment of it, one day at a time, as we can only be sure about today. Tomorrow is a mystery.

      We’ll keep on fighting because we both know how bad it used to be, how hard we had to fight to get as far as we have and realize that nothing can be taking for granted. The price of having rights is always being on guard against those that would take them away! We need our community to be strong and stand together as always!

      Not sure that the current generation realizes that. Hopefully they watched When We Rise and got something out of it. On the plus side, setbacks have always galvanized us and got us to fight back! Perhaps this is a much needed wake up call. People were getting too complacent and thinking that being GLBT didn’t matter anymore in America!

  • Reminds me of the cartoon depicting a salt shaker at a podium and a crowd of slugs carrying signs, “Slugs for Salt!”

  • They support a president that surrounds himself with christians that want all LGBT put to death for their “god”.

  • Isn’t it really like 2 gays for Trump? The two that have been blowing him.

  • Did anyone show up? I haven’t seen any reports on this fiasco.

  • Would April 1st not have been more apt?
