TV Producer to Raise Millions to Fight Anti-LGBT Candidates

TV producer Ryan Murphy announced on Sunday night that he is launching a campaign initiative called “Pose Gives Back,” which will oust anti-LGBT incumbents and help to elect pro-LGBT candidates for Congress. Murphy told the audience at the TrevorLove gala in Los Angeles, “In 2020, I’m going to create and fund, with corporate sponsorship, a multi-million dollar organization that targets anti-LGBTQ candidates running for office. Senate and congressional candidates who think they can get votes hurting and discriminating against us—well, we can get votes too.” The initiative, “Pose Gives Back,” was named after his last TV show. “Pose” was casted with numerous transgender actors and actresses. Murphy is also known for his work on “Glee” and “American Horror Story.”
