The elections 2017 in Germany are just a part of a whole mindset to raise the voice against fear, populism, and terror. We all can make a change by actually voting on September 24th, 2017. But your duty to protect our human rights giving by the constitution don’t stop after putting a cross on a ballot. We have the power to be brave and to make the choice for freedom, peace, diversity, equality, and love together.

About the Initiative “Travesty for Germany” (TfD)

Why was the initiative “Travesty for Germany (short form TfD)” actually founded? The message of the TfD art campaign for the election 2017 in Germany is clear: Travesty for Germany wants everyone to go and actually vote. But more important, Jacky-Oh Weinhaus together with her team wants to set an example to raise the voice against xenophobia, homo- and transphobia, misogyny, and all its sub levels IN EVERYDAY LIFE. If you will, a clarion call for action in and outside the LGBTQ+ community empowering everyone to stand up for their human right of being who they actually are. One reason is the new right-wing party Alternative for Germany (short AfD). The AfD repeatedly calls for a repression of refugees, homosexuals, single parenting and is even against the energy revolution. Something every German should be seriously worried about. The following posters of the fictional party “Travesty for Germany” show on an arty way why a diverse, colorful, and respectful Germany is much more than a repressive life in fear, anger, and violence. 

 

8 Travesty for Germany Drag Election Posters:

Poster #1: Jacky-Oh Weinhaus is the chairwoman of the fictional political party “Travestie für Deutschland”. She is an active voter and encourages everyone to vote during the elections for the German Federal Parliament. But more importantly, she is trying to open up everyone’s eyes to see the danger of populism emanating by a right-wing populism not only in Europe but worldwide.

Poster #5: Sometimes a more clear statement is necessary to understand the need and right of being who they feel like. Gisela Sommer knows how to say it, politically correct, of course.

Poster #6: Her heritage makes Osh-Ree sensitive about what is happening around the world right now. In her opinion as a Jewish immigrant, we should not forget about our own past.
