Squirt.org, the gay hookup site, is making a statement in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights with a billboard campaign that launched on January 17 to coincide with the inauguration of President Elect Donald Trump. The signs, featuring two men holding the American flag along with the words “Dear Mr. President, Let’ s Make America Gay Again,” appear in Los Angeles and New York City.
The billboards, a play on the Trump’ s campaign slogan “Let’ s Make America Great Again,” are a part of Squirt.org’ s effort to support LGBT rights as well as to positively encourage Trump and his administration to take LGBT rights seriously. Billboards will be placed along Hollywood Boulevard’ s Walk of Fame in Los Angeles and in New York City’ s West Village, Chelsea and surrounding neighborhoods.
“LGBT rights are in question with the incoming Trump administration which has vigorously campaigned to roll back many of the rights that protect these communities. So we say, ‘ Let’ s make America gay again.’ Let’ s make it happy and inclusive!” said Attila Szatmari, digital business director for Pink Triangle Press, Squirt.org’ s parent company.
The billboards are the culmination of much discussion and fear in many in the gay community who are apprehensive about the Trump presidency. Trump’ s opposition in 2016 to marriage equality and support for judges who would seek to overturn the Marriage Equality Act that legalized same-sex unions is one of many points of contention.
Transgender rights are also in question, as Trump has voiced his support for the controversial law in North Carolina that bans transgender individuals from using bathrooms that do not coincide with the gender individuals are born as.
A recent life evaluation survey conducted by the Gallup poll reports that a 10-point overall decline in “thriving” is seen in the LGBT community in both the Democrat and Republican parties. Prior to and following Trump’ s January 20 inauguration, there isevidence of a negative effect associated with Trump’ s election campaign among LGBT American adults.
his drop in life evaluation among LGBT American adults after the announcement of Trump’ s victory reveals part of a more general pattern among all Democrats, whose outlook on life also dropped significantly. Notably, the poll reveals in the month prior to the election, 59 percent of Democrats were slightly more likely to identify as “thriving”; a 50 percent decline is being seen, post election.
Furthermore, the large decline in life evaluations among LGBT adults does not point as being a result of the LGBT Democratic leanings; the 10-point overall decline in “thriving” is seen in both Democrat and Republican LGBT individuals. This may suggest that concerns about the development of the upcoming Trump administration cross party lines among LGBT people.
“With more American adults identifying as LGBT, Squirt.org calls on Trump to be a president for everyone,” said Szatmari.
In a Bloomberg Political article released Fall of 2016, a Gallup poll reported a record-high 60 percent of Americans support same-sex marriage. Around the same time an open letter was written from 100 of the top business and economic leaders comprised of many entrepreneurs, women and Latina/os who abide by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
The final outcome of Trump’ s position on LGBT rights is unknown.
