The Biden administration’s Pride Picnic drew its fair share of criticism as the executive branch ramped up its championing LGBT rights. But Americans drew the line when transgender activists went topless on the White House lawn.
Rose Montoya, a biological male who identifies as a woman, posted a TikTok video detailing his day at the Pride Picnic. It showed him meeting President Biden and saying “trans rights are human rights.” It also showed Montoya and other trans individuals flashing their bare chests, showcasing the scars and results of their top surgeries.
The video was immediately met with backlash. Tuesday, the White House called the behavior “inappropriate and disrespectful for any event at the White House.”
The activists were then banned from any White House events.
