The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has sent a message to LGBT+ Republicans who promote an anti-gay agenda in public.

The HRC used a location specific Grindr ad in the Alexandria area of Washington, DC—where the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) was taking place.

The ad read: "Attention: CPAC attendees, you can't be with us in the hotel room and against us in the CPAC ballroom," referring to conservatives who engage in same-sex relationships yet oppose LGBT+ inclusive policies.

Comment: Don’t let the glow of 'Moonlight' be eclipsed
"Moonlight is a revelation; the most beautiful gift to cinema in countless years. An incandescent poem wrought in light and sound, it swirls with love at the intersection of race, sexuality and masculinity." Do not let the Oscars flub steal Moonlight's moment.

The screenshot first appeared on the Twitter of Raymond Braun and was then shared on Reddit.

During last year's Republican National Convention (RNC), there was a sharp increase in Grindr activity around the Quicken Loans Arena area where the convention was held, according to Broadly. There was also an over-representation of white males.

“When comparing Quicken Loans visitors to the Grindr community at large, the biggest trend is over-representation of white males. White men comprise only 40 percent of the Grindr community, but represent 75 percent of the visitors [at the RNC].”
