LGBTQ activists barnstorm Manhattan for Trump’s arrest


With Rainbow banners and signs in tow, members of Gays Against Guns, Rise and Resist, and We Will Not Be Silent joined the packed crowds in Manhattan on April 4 for the historic arrest of former president Donald Trump.

Queer activists made their voices heard in multiple locations — including Trump Tower and the New York County Criminal Courthouse where Trump was arraigned — on a whirlwind day that featured chaotic appearances by fringe right-wing politicians Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, who delivered remarks in Chinatown, and George Santos of New York. Democrats, including Congressmember Jamaal Bowman of the Bronx and Westchester, Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, and out Councilmember Chi Ossé of Brooklyn, were also on hand.
