MWTV: HRC’s ‘Reality Flag’ Rises, Boebert’s Gay Challenger Debuts

HRC highlights anti-LGBTQ laws, while gay Lauren Boebert challenger Alex Walker tackles her "bulls**t".

Walker for Colorado

Massive cow pies rain down on a small Colorado town in one of the most amusing political commercials ever produced.

The Reality Flag

“In 29 states, basic freedoms are missing for millions of LGBTQ+ Americans.” The words are punctuated, in HRC’s new ad “Reality Flag,” by the unfurling of a redesigned American flag conspicuously missing 29 stars.

The ad was created by Joey Soloway, the Emmy-winning showrunner of Transparent, and the campaign is designed to urge the passage of the Equality Act. Visit
