Trump's D.C. Hotel Lights Up With Protest for Trans Awareness Week

Trump's hotel lit up with protest

The National Center for Transgender Equality projected "#Won'tBeErased,"  "#MeToo," and "Trans Survivors" on Donald Trump's hotel in Washington, D.C., Monday night for the end of Trans Awareness Week.

The hotel is only a few blocks from the White House and is a frequent site of protests, The Hill notes. 

NCTE executive director Mara Keisling said the protest was all about visibility in an era when the Trump administration is trying to erase the existence of transgender people by defining sex as established at birth and unchangeable.

“We felt it was important to once again to tell the country, tell trans people, tell the Trump administration and the president himself that transgender people won’t be erased,” Keisling said in a video statement on NCTE's Twitter. “So we’re here today to make a statement about visibility, to make a statement to let everybody know that when they attack us, we fight back every time, and every time they attack us, we get stronger and they get weaker.”
