Did you consider former president Gerald Ford an ally of the LGBT
community?

“Is he the one that pardoned Nixon? [Yeah.] Then that would be a big no. Definitely not.”

Amber Pate

“No, I don’t think he was an ally. I don’t think he was necessarily a foe against it. But he certainly wasn’t an ally.”

Joe R. Lancaster

“I don’t know, because I was so young then. I can’t say that I actually know what his stance was, but based on some of his other views, I’d guess he was a proponent.”

Byron Zealey
Musician

“I think that when he served as president, we were so far behind. I’m gonna say no. We’ve taken big steps since his time.”

Chris Gonzales
Realtor

“Duh…What about a car manufacturer?”

Cody Patterson
