Rose Montoya, a prominent transgender advocate, has been informed that she will no longer be welcome at White House gatherings after sharing a video on social media featuring herself and two others going topless during the recent Pride Month celebration on the South Lawn, Your Content has learned.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre addressed the incident at a press briefing, expressing disapproval of the behavior, stating it was unfair to the families attending the event.
Jean-Pierre clarified that the individuals involved in the video would not be extended invitations to future events. This display was described as atypical for the current administration.
The Pride Month celebration hosted by President Joe Biden aimed to showcase support for the LGBTQ+ community.
In light of recent attempts by some Republican leaders to restrict drag shows and impede gender transitions for young individuals, Biden emphasized a message of love, understanding, and inclusion, particularly directed towards transgender children.
Sections of his speech were featured in Montoya’s video, who identifies as an educator, model, and actor on Instagram.
Montoya defended her actions on social media platforms, citing the legality of going topless in Washington, DC, and expressing solidarity with the “free the nipple” movement.
She argued that the backlash she faced only reinforced her identity as a woman, as a man would not encounter similar opposition.
Montoya clarified that her intention was not to be offensive or profane, noting that she covered her nipples with her hands in the video as a precautionary measure, according U.S. News.
