Stonewall Rally Shows Solidarity Between Gay, Immigrant Communities

By February 10, 2017

On Saturday, demonstrators showed up at the Stonewall Inn in NYC to show solidarity between the LGBT community and those threatened by the President’s travel ban.

The event sought to show the LGBT community standing with immigrants and refugees at risk of being banned from entering the US by Trump’s executive order.

The rally also came a few days after the leak of a draft executive order authorizing religiously-motivated LGBT discrimination. However, the order is now said to have been killed, and will not be signed by the President. Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner allegedly played a role in the scrapping of the order, noting their disapproval to the President.
