Walk Away Founder Brandon Straka Sues LGBT “The Center” in Manhattan for Discrimination After Cancelling #WalkAway Gay Panel
In March, as previously reported at The Gateway Pundit, the LGBT safe space known as “The Center” in New York has decided to cancel a #WalkAway event that was due to take place in their building.
The planned LGBT WalkAway town hall event was the first of its kind.
For years gays have been told the Democrat Party was their rightful home. Today gays are getting fed up with the socialist surge in the DNC. And gays are joining the MAGA movement where love of country, economic viability and national security are paramount.
The Center cancelled the event.
New York City is becoming a completely hostile place for Trump supporters and Republicans.
Diversity of thought is not allowed.
Center Statement on Event Cancellation: Upon further review and consideration, The Center has cancelled the March 28 Walk Away event. Full statement available at https://t.co/HPF8qs35al.

The event was cancelled after far left gay activist Jason Rosenberg tweeted a screenshot of an ad for the event, which ran in the LGBTQ+ publication Get Out Magazine, on Monday. Rosenberg is a member of ACT UP, the AIDS activist group that has met weekly at the LGBT Center since its inception in 1987.
Rosenberg said, “This is incredibly egregious that you’d host an event where panelists have used queer slurs and stood behind policies that put the community at great risk.”

This was followed by other groups threatening to disrupt the event.
The gay mafia struck again.
On Friday Brandon Straka, the founder of the Walk Away movement, filed a complaint with the Manhattan Supreme Court against the LGBT Center in Greenwich Village alleging he was discriminated against by the cancellation of his 250-person WalkAway event “LGBT TownHall” in March, days before it was scheduled to take place.
The Post reported:
“I’m considered a traitor. [The community] wanted to silence me, they wanted to roll over me and make me disappear,” said Straka, who is seeking $20 million in damages.
He alleges that the LGBT Center caved to pressure from liberal activists who, Straka said, “mounted a smear campaign.” Some 280 people signed an open letter to the center, demanding that the event be canceled. The letter refers to Straka and his panelists as “racist” and “transphobic.” (One of the panelists, Rob Smith, is black.)
