Members of the LGBT community planned to make out in front of Trump Tower on Sunday to show solidarity to underprivileged groups.
A group of about 40 participants of the “Lgbtq+ Make Out At Trump Tower” rally met at 61st Street and Central Park West at about 1 p.m. and then marched to Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. From there, they continued down Central Park South.
Mike Hisey, 54, came to the rally donning a Kellyanne Conway Inauguration Day-inspired red, white and blue coat. Standing inside a makeshift kissing booth tucked under an umbrella, Hisey said he’s been protesting since President Donald Trump won the election.
“You have to keep coming out,” he said. “Peacefully purposefully you have keep coming.”
One demonstrator, Ephie Aardema, who identifies as bisexual, came wearing an apron full of “vag badges” and pins.
“Gay rights are human rights,” the 25-year-old from Jersey City said. “It’s really important right now that we preemptively defend marriage equality in light of this new administration.”
