Apparently, the Trump administration didn’t realize that the best way to get people talking about something was the ban it.
The Human Rights Campaign got the message, though. After reports that the Centers of Disease Control would not be allowed to use words like “transgender,” “fetus,” and “evidence-based” in budget documents, the LGBTQ rights group installed a projector across from the entrance of Trump Hotel in New York.
The projector displayed the words across the entrance.
“Our message for the Trump-Pence Administration is this: you cannot erase us. We will meet attacks on our community with a resolve to be louder and more visible than ever before,” said David Stacy, HRC’s director of government affairs.
HRC partnered with artist Robin Bell for the visuals of the projection.
