HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – For years the LGBT community has been fighting for equal rights; with much of the time meeting opposition. But last year, the Supreme Court ruled to legalize same-sex marriage.

For gay right activists like Ambrosia Starling the next president of the United States has to continue fighting for the LGBT community.

"We've heard so much back and forth that were not hearing a lot of factual policy talk right now and it worries me," Sterling said.

According to CNN, Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump has threaten to turn back the legalization of same-sex marriage and has supported state sanctioned discrimination against the transgender community. But Trump has said he will protect the LGBT community from violence and oppression.

Hillary Clinton supporter Josh Collett believes she will continue to support LGBT rights, despite in 2008 never really fully supporting same-sex marriage.

"Like everyone else in the country, myself included we evolve on the issues, you learn about the issues, and your positions do change. she was for traditional marriage, but I believe she always been in support of equality," Collett said.

Collet and Sterling want someone who will fight for the LGBT community, but at the end of the day the decision is left in the hands of the voters.
