    Politically, do you identify with the left or the right? It'd be interesting to here from the lgbt community as to weather there are any people that identify with the right rather than the left other than milo yianoppolous.

    I identify with the correct point of view. So basically, in my God complexed mind, whether or not it is left or right is irrelevant, my political views are the most accurate anyone could achieve with the information I have. But mostly I would say I tend to be a very utilitarian libertarian if you have to label me into some party/philosophical grouping.

    Usually left, but I don't like any of the current left-wing party leaders. For a start, the leader of the liberal democrats said being gay is a sin. I'm a traditionalist, so I favour the right in many aspects.

    I identify more to the left/liberal side, but it depends on the issue. I don't generally follow politics, so I'm not familiar with too many politicians (and I generally don't agree with them or trust them). But most of my views and beliefs tend to align left/liberal.

    I'm more center, because I do agree with policies of both left and right, just to a less extreme than they want.

    Centre-left for me. In my soul I'm very left but practically more centre. One would hope that most LGBTQ people would be socially liberal at least but it's not a necessary link.

    I voted "left" but I mostly identify as an anarchist, or anarcho-communist. Utopias aside, I usually support leftist policies, although I can't really trust the parties.

    I vote with the right, I wasn't really into political party's a few weeks ago, but then I started watching the shit going down at some of my favorite speakers (Milo and Shapiro) and the Antifa, SJWs, 3rd Wave feminism, Anti-Canada day, Queer Kids Stuff(Wtaf), Omar Khadr, protests, etc. and then I know I couldn't be on the left. (plus I love Lauren Southern)

    Since I made this thread I feel like I should contribute to it.

    I personally was very liberal when I first joined this site, but over time, I have grown to dislike what the left stands for, funnily enough, starting on this site, I made a joke, somebody responded with 'why would yoi say that you monster', or something similar. That was the point I startes moving away from the left.
    But I was still a centrist, maybe Slightly left leaning, I wanted clinton to win last year and I wanted to stay in the EU.
    After spending more time on the internet (It's not as if I'm going to be exposed to conservative views by people I know), I slowly became more and more right, starting with the benefits of leaving the EU, warming up to donald trump, and most of this came from listening to people like Milo yianoppolous. So... Well, here's my political compass.

    Also, bump

    Center. But honestly I'm not into politics enough to really say.

    I'm very much a leftist. Growing up in a working class family living paycheck to paycheck really puts things in perspective, like how expensive healthcare and college education is in the U.S. That, and I can't stand how the radical right constantly demonizes minority communities.

    Well I really started out not being attracted to the right, but repelled by the left, since personally I can't stand third wave feminism (My English teacher is a femenist and I hate her for it. Learning about macbeth and she starts talking about the patriarchy and why communism is better than capitalism). I am also opposed to communism, since it has never worked, wheras capitalism seems to work just fine. I also believe that some of these 'activist groups' such as antifa and black lives matter should be seen as domestic terrorist groups. Antifa Is seen as a domestic terrorist group in at least one state, and rightfully so.
    The right answered all of the questions I had, have, and will have for a fair time I'd like to think, whereas the left just causes problems. I do love antifa though. Their name 'anti fascist' is so ironic. They stand to stop people on the right speaking up to them, which is supression of thought, which is, at it's core, fascism.

    Lincoln Republican.
    If you don't understand what that means I'll tell you I do not side with "Conservatives" and their tea party politics
