Republican Candidate Derrick Van Orden Becomes Irate Over Gay Pride Display

I don’t think most people realize that up until recently all books with what is considered “gay content” were usually placed in the “Adults Only” section of libraries, book shops, and even online retailers. I’m not talking about gay books with erotica or gay erotic romances. I’m talking about books with any gay content. 

But this story is a little different, as you’ll see below. In fact, it’s very different. A Republican congressional candidate, Derrick Van Orden, went after a staffer at a Wisconsin library because of a gay pride display. There was nothing erotic about the display. It simply had gay content. But Van Orden claims there were inaccuracies that offended him.  

“I unequivocally support equal rights for all Americans. This of course includes our fellow citizens who are members of the LGBTQ+ community. It is 2021 and this should not have to be stated but there are people who continue to divide us as Americans for political purposes. I will not allow them to further degrade the relationships we have as citizens.”

Here’s more. Van Orden claims he was offended by the display because it misrepresented Republicans. He claims he supports the LGBTQ+ community and that he’s sick and tired of the division some people create. 

It’s interesting.
