LGBTQ+ Activists Crash Trump Pride, Jeer Tiffany, Grenell

Activists interrupted Tiffany Trump's disingenuous speech about her father's support of LGBTQ+ people. 

The Trump administration's rainbow tour continued over the weekend. But LGBTQ+ activists crashed a so-called Trump Pride event outside of Pittsburgh, interrupting Tiffany Trump's misinformation speech and chanting, "Just because you suck cock doesn't mean you're not a bigot."

In recent weeks, the Trump campaign ramped up its attempts to gaslight LGBTQ+ voters into believing that Donald Trump is a friend to the community. Trump and company launched a series of campaign events starring his daughter Tiffany and Richard Grenell, the gay former U.S. ambassador to Germany and national security adviser, aimed at LGBTQ+ voters, despite the Trump administration's long history of actions against queer people.

At the event at Domenico's Ristorante in Pennsylvania's Cranberry Township, Tiffany Trump was aping her father's recent comments at the United Nations when he said he was working to decriminalize homosexuality around the world when activists broke in to rebuke her statements. In 2011, President Barack Obama was the first U.S. president to discuss LGBTQ+ rights at the United Nations.

Supporters began shouting "Four more years" to drown out the activists. At one point, the crowd quieted and the refrain "Just because you suck cock doesn't mean you're not a bigot" permeated the room until security removed the activists.

Last week, Melania Trump recorded a video in which she misrepresented her husband's support for LGBTQ+ people by ignoring heinous actions his administration has taken against the community. Trump's hateful agenda includes revoking guidelines for trans kids in schools, banning transgender people from the military, opposing antidiscrimination measures for LGBTQ+ people, and promoting the "religious freedom" to discriminate.

Donald Trump's recent appointment to the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett, has criticized the court's marriage equality decision and served as a trustee of private schools that discriminate against LGBTQ+ people, among other acts of bigotry. Trump's vice president, Mike Pence, is a known bigot, having amassed a litany of offenses against queer people including signing a law when he was governor of Indiana that would have allowed businesses to refuse service to LGBTQ+ customers (it was later amended).
