Yes? Cause LGBT rights and progress favouring equality for us is inherently a leftist view, so most LGBT folk would naturally gravitate towards that side of USA politics, which I guess is the democratic party. Seeking rights for ourselves and seeking equality isn't "political" and shouldn't be seen as controversial, and if people are alienated by that then it's not the LGBT community's fault.I love Gay community , most of my friends are LGBTQ in real life and i even participated for the rights . However , i see the LGBTQ community are increasingly becoming political especially in US , i am not sure in EU /Australia but most of the LGBTQ activist are unabashed supporter of democratic party . If you dont vote for them then you are traitor , this is what i dont like , I am mostly neutral when voting in polarized electoral process.
To be fair I voted Trump over Hillary and most of my friends thought i was racist and sexist then i lost my LGBTQ friend just because i thought trump was better option over hillary because of many other myriad reason . However most LGBTQ activist have become hawkish and they think people are traitors just because you lean to certain part of ideology .
My only thing is i hope LGBTQ movement doesnt go too political and i really fear it will alienate many people as things go .
