TV Producer Ryan Murphy To Give Millions To Support Pro-LGBTQ Politics

TV producing star Ryan Murphy is using his money to help LGBTQ initiatives yet again.

Being in charge of several tv shows like Pose, American Horror Story, American Crime Story, Fued, and more hasn’t stopped TV producer Ryan Murphy from helping LGBTQ causes.

Earlier this year, Murphy announced that he would be giving all of his personal profits from creating the FX show Pose to LGBTQ charities and organizations.

Now, Murphy is working on supporting pro-LGBTQ politicians and opposing their political rivals.

According to The Hill, Murphy is creating the program “Pose Gives Back,” which will officially launch in 2020.

“I’m going to create and fund, with corporate sponsorship, a multimillion-dollar organization that targets anti-LGBTQ candidates running for office,” Murphy said during his acceptance speech for the Hero Award at this year's Trevor Projects Gala.

During his speech, Murphy noted how he wants to send a message to anti-LGBTQ politicians who push laws supporting discrimination.

“Senate and congressional candidates who think they can get votes hurting and discriminating against us — well, we can get votes, too,” he said.

“I want these hateful and wrong politicians to go, and to stop polluting our moral and ethical ether,” he later added.

“We are going to send a message which says you cannot make discrimination against us a political virtue anymore,” he continued. “You can’t keep killing our vulnerable young people by promoting and nationalizing your rural, close-minded anti-constitutional viewpoints.”
