“MAKE AMERICA GAY AGAIN.” 

Mike Pence – Vice President of the United States/homophobe – spent the week with his wife in Aspen, Colorado, and their neighbours fabulously protested his anti-gay agenda with a sign reading “MAKE AMERICA GAY AGAIN” above a rainbow background.

Jason Auslander – reporter for The Aspen Times – tweeted: “Neighbors across from the home near Aspen where Vice President Mike Pence is staying hung this banner yesterday.

“The neighbors later offered Secret Service agents hot chili corn muffins to ward off the chill, according to a source.”

Take a look at the colourful display below.

“Come thruuuuuu!” – Violet Chachki, 2015.

The Vice President of the United States has repeatedly shown an anti-LGBT stance throughout his career, claiming that same-sex marriage would lead to “societal collapse”, and also voted against passing a non-discrimination act.

Back in October, Trump joked that Pence “wants to hang all gay people” – which, of course, they denied.

Oh, and in 2000, Pence proposed a shift in government funds from the Ryan White Act – which helps those living with HIV/AIDS – to “institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behaviour.”

So, yeah, homophobe.
