Self-described "straight, country boy" Cody Barlow believes duct tape really can fix anything, including bigots.

The 28-year-old from Hulbert, Oklahoma, recently decorated the tailgate of his pickup truck for pride month in rainbow colors and a bold message: "NOT ALL COUNTRY BOYS ARE BIGOTS."

Barlow's Facebook post about his truck had been shared more than 135,000 times by Tuesday with comments praising him for being an LGBTQ ally. He says he thinks he can change closed minds.
