All Gay Content is Adult Content, According to GOP’s New Plan

Project 2025 is an initiative launched by the Heritage Foundation—a conservative think tank—aimed at preparing a comprehensive policy agenda and staffing plan for a potential future Republican presidential administration. And, as the Free Speech Coalition (FSC) warns us, it plans to incriminate anything to do with “Adult Content,” while simultaneously and broadly changing what “Adult Content” is and means.

The guidelines threaten sex workers and the LGBTQ+ community by advocating for policies that criminalize pornography and broadly define all LGBTQ+ content as obscene. The project aims to reverse legal protections for LGBTQ+ individuals, impacting employment, housing, and healthcare, and promoting censorship of LGBTQ+ media. So, this initiative would reintroduce severe laws that endanger the livelihoods and rights of these communities, calling for collective action to prevent the implementation of these regressive measures.

The Handbook for Regression

The FSC breaks down proposals in the 920-page GOP document. But, there’s not much new ground here; the party of Trump has proposed anti-gay legislation for generations, and baked such ideals regularly into each year’s party outlines. In light of the success of things like DeSantis’s “Don’t Say Gay” Bill, and increasingly violent anti-queer rhetoric in the US, though, such plans feel ominous and horrifying. In light of the poor performance of the two cadavers we’ve propped up collectively as a society for the race to be leader, it also feels like a very real possibility that Project 2025 will see the light of day.

The FSC, founded in 1991, advocates for the rights and interests of the adult entertainment industry in the United States. It protects freedom of speech and expression for content producers, distributors, and performers. The FSC provides legal support, lobbies against restrictive legislation, and addresses issues like censorship, discrimination, and unfair regulation.

Even Trump Hates It

For what it’s worth, Trump is now trying to distance himself from Project 2025, too. That’s not much solace from a man that leveraged an anti-vax movement for vaccines he helped legislate and endorse, but all the same, Trump had his own choice words for the nearly 1000-page anti-queer manifesto. As reported by Newsweek, Trump wrote:

“I know nothing about Project 2025. I have no idea who is behind it. I disagree with some of the things they’re saying and some of the things they’re saying are absolutely ridiculous and abysmal. Anything they do, I wish them luck, but I have nothing to do with them.”

As with so much of Trump’s first term, the question would be less about whether Trump endorses it, and more about if there would be anything to stop his GOP colleges from enacting it without his awareness.
