Hundreds of LGBTQ supporters took to New York City streets Saturday afternoon to protest President Donald Trump’s now-blocked travel ban, immigration policies and other executive orders they described as “illegal, immoral, unconstitutional and un-American”.
The travel ban was suspended by a federal judge Friday.
The protest, sponsored by more than a dozen advocacy groups and local politicians, was held outside the historic Stonewall Inn in Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood, the symbolic heart of the LGBTQ rights movement.
Other protests to “Resist Trump” were scheduled across the country through the weekend. Demonstrations were planned in cities that include Denver, Houston and Buffalo, New York.
