Well Chelsea Piers NYC had their chance to cancel the Ron DeSantis visit to speak at the extreme right wing Jewish Leadership Conference led by the
The Kapos For Nazi’s Fund The Tikvah Fund and they refused to cancel the event.
So we are are TOTALLY CANCELLING The Chelsea Piers. Every venue. We gays love to ice skate you know, and eat out. Especially in Chelsea. Which is our Gayborhood. DURING RIDE MONTH, BUT the Chelsea Pier’s spit in our face and now they must pay the price.
Hundreds of LGBTQ rights activists at their supporters gathered outside New York City‘s Chelsea Piers on Sunday holding signs like ‘Transphobia is not kosher’ and ‘Say Gay’ to protest the venue’s hosting of a Jewish Leadership Conference featuring Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as a guest speaker.
“DeSantis is clearly trying to raise money here in New York City for that speculative presidential bid,” New York State Senator Brad Hoylman told Bloomberg News at the protest. “He’s stirring up a hateful set of the Republican party, who want to see LGBTQ people erased from textbooks, schools, if not daily public life entirely.”
All LGBT New Yorkers, friends, and allies should participate against ALL businesses within the complex. ALL LGBT and LGBTQ friendly events should cancel any reservations at any Chelsea Piers venue
They obviously don’t care for us unless it’s for our money.
Lets make them pay for that.

❌ DeSantis vetoed $150K in funds to provide counseling for Pulse survivors.
A disgrace. @onePULSEorg https://t.co/j5beuYQTSy
While Ron DeSantis and Mike Pompeo speak about “Jewish leadership” inside, the real Jewish leadership is happening in the street outside. Shame on @ChelseaPiersNYC @tikvahfund pic.twitter.com/rI1K9NAgPa— Jake Levin (@Jakeblevin) June 12, 2022
