When people talk about preppers/survivalists most visualize white, Christian, conservative. Basically Bubba in camo but prepping actually extends to all walks of life. We saw the massacre in Florida and saw a rise in the number of homosexuals arming themselves. I have always had a “relaxed” attitude towards gay people. I do not care what you do, just do not shove it down my throat and behave appropriately. Yes, I am a Christian but I also realize that we are not all built the same way. If SHTF, I do not care about your sexual orientation, if you are a solid person and a good addition to helping us survive then the door is open. Interestingly, Rush Limbaugh is talking about Obama encouraging lesbians to become farmers. I found this on a gay forum. Imagine being in the closet being gay but also being a prepper.

They are used to discretion and secrets. What Happens When Gays Join Right-Wing Survivalists?
