The National Center for Transgender Equality took their message directly to Donald Trump… by projecting it on one of his hotels.
For Transgender Awareness Week, the NCTE went to the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., last night and projected a message on the hotel’s facade: “Transgender People #WontBeErased.”
We went to the Trump International Hotel for the final day of #TransAwarenessWeek to make a statement about visibility – to make a statement that every time they attack us, we fight back.

“So we’re here today to make a statement about visibility,” Mara Keisling, executive director of NCTE, said in a video posted to social media. “A statement to let anybody know that when they attack us, we fight back. Every time.”
“Every time they attack us, we get stronger, they get weaker, we will always fight back, and we will always win,” she said.
A post on Facebook showed that the message being projected on the hotel had several variations, including “Transgender Survivors #metoo #WontBeErased,” “Transgender Immigrants #WontBeErased,” and “Transgender People of Color #WontBeErased.”
