People hold signs during a gathering of the LGBTQ community and supporters protesting against U.S. president Donald Trump's agenda outside the Stonewall Inn in Manhattan on Saturday.

Thousands of LGBTQ people and their allies showed up in front of the Stonewall Inn in New York City on Saturday afternoon to protest President Donald Trump’s
“un-American executive orders” and “speak out against ... the most anti-LGBT nominees and appointees in modern history,” according to the event’s Facebook page.

The LGBT Solidarity Rally, organized just days ago, was co-sponsored by more than 65 queer advocacy organizations, including PFLAG NYC, Lambda Legal and the Black Lesbian Conference 2018, and politicians like Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York City Council Member Corey Johnson.

Massive crowds filled the streets around the historic bar ― the site of the now famous June 1968 Stonewall Riots ― chanting, cheering, booing and carrying signs that were just as diverse as the people who brought them.

Below, check out 24 of the best signs seen at the Stonewall LGBTQ solidarity action.
