Trump is Selling LGBTQ Pride T-Shirts, GLAAD Responds

Friday May 24, 2019

Just in time for Pride Month in June...

GLAAD is railing against President Donald Trump for selling LGBTQ rainbow Pride T-shirts on his website for $24 — that's on sale, down from $30.

"Show your pride and your support for Trump with this exclusive equality tee," the description for the T-shirt reads.

The shirt is white and has a rainbow flag on the front with the text "LGBTQ for Trump."

In a statement GLAAD took issue with Trump's Pride shirt.

"As LGBTQ Americans are preparing to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pride Month and the historic Stonewall riots, President Trump and his 2020 presidential campaign started selling an 'LGBTQ for Trump' T-shirt on their website. The problem — the Trump Administration is the most anti-LGBTQ in recent memory, issuing more than 108 attacks on LGBTQ Americans, in policy and rhetoric, since taking office — with one attack coming just yesterday. In fact, Trump has yet to issue a statement honoring June as National Pride Month since the start of his administration."

Zeke Stokes, GLAAD's chief programs officer, also weighed in.

"Trump should hold the sales pitch and try issuing a statement honoring June as National Pride Month and the countless of LGBTQ Americans who fought tooth and nail for the level of acceptance our nation sees today," Stokes said.
