#LoveTrumpsHate: HRC Brings Post-it Wars to the Nation’s Capital

by Hayley Miller May 26, 2016


Today, HRC brought the famous Post-it Wars in New York City to the nation’s capital, helping to ring in this 2016 pride season with a message crafted from over 3,500 neon Post-its: #LoveTrumpsHate.

The Post-it Wars has gone viral on the streets on NYC, displaying fun and creative messages through colorful Post-it notes. HRC decided to bring the effort to DC with a political twist, sending a pointed message aimed at anti-LGBT Republican candidate Donald Trump, whose divisive campaign has targeted women, people of color and others who are part of the LGBT and allied community. 

Trump, now the candidate for the Republican Party, remains dangerously out of step with the majority of fair-minded Americans who believe that LGBT people should be treated equally under the law. Trump has not only promised to use the Supreme Court to roll back nationwide marriage equality, but he’s supported a bill that would lead to more Kim Davis-style discrimination, and said that he would allow states like North Carolina violate federal civil rights laws.

He has said that if elected president he would rescind the Obama Administration’s historic directives protecting transgender people from discrimination and has refused to support the Obama Administration’s ground-breaking guidance that public schools and schools receiving federal money must ensure that transgender students are treated with dignity and allowed equal access to facilities, such as restrooms, consistent with their gender identity.

While Trump continues to spew anti-LGBT rhetoric, it is clear he is on the wrong side of history. A survey by the HRC Foundation found that three-quarters of transgender students feel unsafe in school settings. A report by the Williams Institute found that half of transgender adults who were bullied in school had attempted suicide. These startling numbers can only be expected to rise if the North Carolina law, and other similar bills proposed in other states, continue to target these young people.
