She may have appeared on QVC, but really – Melania Trump a gay icon?The Trumps only entered the White House less than a week ago (fact checked) and already people are wondering whether President Trump’s wife and now the first lady of the USA, Melania Trump could be a gay icon.
The White House website has removed all traces of LGBT rights, but it has outlined some of Melania’s credentials including all the magazine covers she’s made and the fact that she has appeared on QVC.
Now some people on Twitter are questioning whether she could become an official gay icon. Bearing in mind that we set our standards at Bette Midler and Cher… we’re not sure Melania will ever get there.
I read a thoughtful plea from a gay to other gays asking us not to make Melania a gay icon. Totally hear that, but it's gonna be hard.

So what has she said about gay rights?
Well, as far as we can tell absolutely nothing. She has pledged to fight bullying during her time as First Lady, but fell short in mentioning whether that would include LGBT+ youth.
