‘LGBT’ flyers — picturing Lady Liberty, Gun, Beer and Trump — sent to Nashville gay bars

The acronym “LGBT” typically stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. However, flyers sent to Tennessee gay bars last week with the acronym emblazoned on them were not interpreted by the local community to be supportive of gender and sexual minorities.

Gay bars in Nashville received pamphlets with the acronym and images of the Statue of Liberty (L), a gun (G), a beer bottle (B) and President Donald Trump (T). The gun pictured in the flyer, an assault rifle, is similar to the one used in the shooting at Orlando gay nightclub Pulse, advocates pointed out.
