Florida City Council candidate: 'To hell with gay pride'

A Floridian City Council candidate is openly campaigning from an anti-LGBT+ standpoint, saying: “It makes me more popular as a leader.”

Chico Cromartie is running for District 7 in the city of St Petersburg, Florida, where he believes the LGBT+ community is thriving at the expense of the black community.

Cromartie, 47, regularly broadcasts his views on his Facebook page.

His posts include frequent references to his support for Donald Trump, and his disdain for homosexuality, which he believes is “a choice.”

In a now-deleted post seen by the Tampa Bay Times, he wrote on on June 23, the day after Pride in St Petersburg: “I hear you south St. Pete! Finally we have a leader who’s not afraid to say, ‘Too [sic] hell with gay pride & their flag.”

On July 11 he declared he would not “implement or support any policy that implies or economically favours homosexuality, a group or any ideology based solely on a person’s choice to be homosexual and/or anti-American!”
