White House Bans Trans Activist Who Went Topless After Meeting Biden

June 13, 2023

The White House on Tuesday banned a transgender activist who flashed artificial breasts after meeting President Joe Biden at a Pride event.

"This behavior is inappropriate and disrespectful for any event at the White House," a White House spokesperson told the New York Post after activist Rose Montoya's video of the stunt went viral. "Individuals in the video will not be invited to future events."

The video, posted to Instagram, showed Montoya meeting Biden on the White House lawn before cutting to a clip of the activist going topless.

Montoya, a biological male and one of several activists who attended Biden's pride celebration, defended the act after receiving backlash, saying, "Going topless in Washington, D.C., is legal, and I fully support the movement to free the nipple."

"I had zero intention of trying to be vulgar or be profane in any way," Montoya said.

At the ceremony Montoya attended, White House staff decorated the building with a massive Pride flag flanked by two American flags, leading critics to accuse the White House of violating the U.S. Flag Code.
