Liberals in San Francisco – both gay and straight – are furious over a new Donald Trump ad poster that reaches out to the LGBTQ community. The posters, shown here, feature a twist on the familiar Apple logo. Instead of a “bite” in the Apple, Trump’s outline appears, and the apple sports a “rainbow” color scheme similar to those used on gay-rights flags.
The posters take a direct shot at the conventional wisdom that minorities, including the gay community, do not vote Republican. The Gateway Pundit provides more details:
The posters were most prominent in San Francisco’s Castro District. They were also photographed at Divisadero & Haight, Divisadero & Page, Market & 7th St, across from Twitter headquarters at Market & Fell, and near the HRC’s offices on Castro Street.
Last month black-and-white version of these posters appeared in Hollywood and other parts of Los Angeles.
Today is National Coming Out Day, and the artist group known only as “Art Wing Conspiracy” emphasized the importance of “culture jamming” using popular symbols and events.
“Trump supporters are the new queers,” said one of the artists. “Many Trump supporters are in the closet, especially in the LGBTQ community. Today, on National Coming Out Day, we encourage these people to come out and stop living a lie. It’s okay to be out as a Trump supporter, even if it’s just to yourself. When you are in the voting booth, no one has to know.”
“The liberal San Francisco community needs to know that there are many Trump supporters among you. We’re here, we’re queer, and you’re just going to have to deal with it.”
