A gay couple in North Carolina are raising money to purchase a ‘Gays For Trump’ billboard ad that they hope to display in Orlando near Pulse, the LGBTQ nightclub where 49 innocent people were murdered and dozens more wounded on June 12.
So far, Peter Boykin and his husband, David Smith, have raised more than $6,200 of their $8,000 GoFundMe goal.
Peter Boykin says his husband, who was ejected from a Greensboro, NC Trump rally for savagely attacking a protester, came up with the billboard idea. The protester has since forgiven his attacker and decided not to press charges.

In a video posted to Twitter on Saturday, Boykin says he would like the first billboard to go up near the Pulse nightclub and would also like to put up billboards across North Carolina from Nov. 1-8.
“North Carolina is a battleground swing state, if we can win here it will signal Trump is winning,” Boykin writes on his GoFundMe page. “The Billboard will mainly say TRUMP 2016 and underneath say sponsored by supporters of GaysforTrump.org.”
“I am a Gay Republican with the Mission of taking the movement of #GaysForTrump and pushing forward to unite us for the intention of getting Trump elected,” Boykin adds.
