TED NUGENT On ‘Pride Month’: ‘Why Would Sexuality Be Some Source Of Pride?’

Ted Nugent 2023

During the latest episode of “The Nightly Nuge,” a news-style segment where Ted Nugent shares his views on current events, the outspoken conservative rocker was informed by co-host Keith Mark that eleven NFL teams had reportedly not posted a Pride-specific message on social media during the first days of Pride Month.

“Hallelujah. Boy, I knew I felt the love somewhere,” Ted said. “But if you’re gay, here’s the bottom line. Nobody cares. We just wanna know, are you honest? Do you show up on time? Do you put your heart and soul into being the best that you can be? Can your family and friends and your fellow Americans, can we trust you?

“Nobody cares what your sexual proclivities might be behind closed doors. We hope you keep it behind closed doors. But bottom line is, why would sexuality be some source of pride unless you have a hidden agenda like the drag queens, where they literally twerk fat men’s genitals to little boys and girls singing ‘it won’t lick itself’? You’re proud of that? I don’t think so.”

The NFL has reportedly launched an entire apparel line for Pride Month, celebrating the LGBTQ community, love, and the LGBTQ football fandom. This follows an NFL-sponsored LGBTQ Super Bowl party in Las Vegas. Additionally, the league has shared Pride-themed messages from various NFL teams on social media.
