Trump Supporter Fights FX’s “Pose” Star Indya Moore Outside Of Her TV Studio

It’s Pride Month and while the streets of cities across the country have been a parade of rainbows and love… there’s always That Guy.

During a month that is meant to be a celebration and honoring of all the people that make up the LGBTQ+ community, violence against the groups that make up the lovely rainbow has been unsettling. In fact, throughout the month, several trans people have been the victims of hate crimes during Pride month, and one such attack was caught on camera.

The most recent attack on a member of our community has been someone that has actually done quite a bit of work to elevate us.

“Pose” actor Indya Moore recently got into a physical dispute with a Trump supporter over opposing views.

For whatever reason, a man wearing a MAGA visor and carrying a banner that read “Re-Elect Trump in 2020: Keep America Great!” was standing outside the television studios in New York City where she films her show.

Moore takes the sign away from the man and someone is heard saying to call the police.

“Well, you guys aren’t fans of our show, and we don’t want you to be fans of our show,” Moore said to the man.

Thankfully a police officer was nearby and broke up the altercation before it got worse.

There was clearly pushing and shoving from both parties but an NYPD officer broke up the fight that included other people.

Moore hasn’t publically discussed the incident with the Trump supporter, but she remains vocal about advocating for the trans community.

On the same day as the fight, Moore tweeted, “Hey y’all those of you with varying political opinions who also watch pose… Thank you for loving black trans women, please also love us in real life and make sure the love you have for us reflects your politics because our lives/welfare are at Mercy to your politics/’opinions.'”

What the entire incident below.
