It’s A Tutu Party! Wyoming Residents Wear Tutus To Protest Their Homophobic Senator

Last month Republican Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming made some homophobic remarks while addressing middle and high school students.

Enzi told the kids that they were free to be whoever they wanted, but only if they didn’t shove it in anyone’s face. He went on to clarify what he meant, just in case people didn’t understand his original statement:

“I know a guy who wears a tutu and goes to bars on Friday night and is always surprised that he gets in fights. Well, he kind of asks for it.”

Wyoming residents and people across the country decided to do something against the Senator for his homophobic remarks. In response people protested Enzi by wearing tutus to bars, sporting events, and basically everywhere.

Their voices were heard all over and the pictures were posted on social media with the hashtag #liveandlettutu:

Enzi’s remarks brought forth harsh memories of the tragic crime that occurred in the University of Wyoming where gay student Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten to death in 1998, an incident that brought national attention to hate-motivated crimes.
