Your DGB for today is troll Mike Pence and support the LGBTQ+ community at the same time.
Our veep is no friend of LGBTQ+ folk, so when he came out with a cute kid’s book about his family’s bunny, some people saw a perfect opportunity. The team over at John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight created an alternative version. Their delightful picture book, A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, shows Marlon falling in love with another boy bunny and the two of them hopping off into the sunset together. Not only is the message lovely and inclusive, but 100% of the proceeds of this book will be donated to two terrific causes, The Trevor Project and AIDS United. Even Mike Pence’s daughter has bought a copy of this version of Marlon’s story and as of this morning, this Marlon Bundo book is #3 on the Amazon charts, which we hope is giving *someone* in Washington a bit of indigestion.
Today we’re asking you to order a copy for yourself, your kids’, or your grandkids’ Easter baskets, or your school library. Alternatively, you could donate directly to the great organizations this book’s sales go to support. Add the cherry on the top of this Resistance sundae and tweet, instagram, or facebook your action and be sure to tag @VP when you do.
