Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump donated $30,000 to “gay” activist organizations in 2012, a filed tax return outlines, including to a group that promotes homosexuality to children.
The Donald J. Trump Foundation donated $20,000 to the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) according to a form 990 posted online and available for public review, as well as $10,000 to the Gay Men’s Health Crisis.
GLSEN was founded in 1990 by Kevin Jennings and a coalition of Massachusetts school teachers who supported advocacy for homosexual issues. The group, whose motto is “championing LGBT issues in K-12 education,” creates printed resources for teachers to use in the classroom, including for LGBT History Month and LGBT Pride Month. It also provides suggestions for reading material to use as lessons for the children, including the books “Heather Has Two Mommies,” “It’s OK to Be Different” and “Tango Makes Three.”
But some of the books that GLSEN has recommended have drawn severe criticism due their graphic sexual content, including “Queer 13: Lesbian and Gay Writers Recall Seventh Grade.” In the book, writer Justin Chin recalls how as a 13-year-old, he experienced “near-rapes” by older men, but “really did enjoy those sexual encounters.”
In the book “Reflections of a Rock Lobster,” author Aaron Frickle outlines how he and his male friends often engaged in sexual activity in elementary school and “never worried” if they got caught.
“By first grade I was sexually active with many friends. In fact, a small group of us regularly met in the grammar school lavatory to perform [a sexual act] on one another,” it reads.
According to reports, those involved with GLSEN believe in speaking about sex and gender to students from an early age.
“Children in the kindergarten age are ‘developing their super-ego’… That’s when the saturation process needs to begin,” activist and New York school teacher Jaki Williams said in teaching a workshop on “Inclusive Kindergartens” at a GLSEN conference.
“Five-year-olds are very interested in the big questions. They’re very interested in sex, death, and love, and they ask those questions, and they talk about them,” she asserted. “And we want to help them find the answers.”
The other organization that the Trump Foundation supported in 2012, the Gay Men’s Health Crisis, is a New York-based group that seeks to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic among homosexual men.
“In 1981, six gay men (and their friends) gathered in writer Larry Kramer’s living room to address the ‘gay cancer’ and raise money for research. This informal meeting provided the foundation for what would soon become Gay Men’s Health Crisis,” its website reads.
Trump’s donations are among a variety of causes the foundation supported, including the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which received $100,000, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, which received $5,000, and the Magic Johnson Foundation, which received $10,000.
As previously reported, last month, Trump was interviewed by lesbian publisher Susan O’Connell of the homosexual publication Bay Windows, who asked, “When President Trump is in office can we look for more forward motion on equality for gays and lesbians?”
“Well, you can,” Trump, who personally opposes “gay marriage,” replied. “And look, again, we’re going to bring people together. And that’s your thing (homosexuality) and other people have their thing. We have to bring all people together, and if we don’t we’re not going to have a country anymore.”
