Chris Barron, chairman of gay GOP group GOProud, has suggested lesbian, bisexual and transgender people are not part of the gay community.

During an appearance Friday on Fox News' early morning talk show Red Eye, Barron mocked a viewer's question that included the inclusive term LGBT, which stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender.

“Will a gay Republican ever be truly accepted in the LGBT community? Will Bill?” a viewer messaged the show on Twitter, a reference to host Bill Schulz.

Barron complained, “Why do I get the gay question?” then added: “Yeah, I think a Republican will be accepted in the gay community. I don't know about the LGBTQI whatever community. I don't think Bill's ever going to be accepted.”

He later added: “They're adding letters to [it] I don't even understand anymore.”

Earlier this month, GOProud stirred controversy in announcing that celebrity conservative and author Ann Coulter had joined its advisory council and been given the title “gay icon.” Coulter is best known for calling former Senator John Edwards a “faggot” during his 2008 bid for the White House.
