A new billboard in Colorado that says “Stop seeing me naked!” will soon be on the streets.
But that’s not the end of it.
On Sunday, billboards will also be placed in cities and towns throughout the country that advertise “No More Naked” signs.
And the first ones are scheduled to go up in cities like Denver, Seattle, Portland and Boston.
According to a press release, the billboards will warn people not to be attracted to strangers, including “young, attractive women,” and to “leave the room and go somewhere where you won’t be judged for your sexuality.”
While the signs have drawn the ire of some gay and lesbian advocates, many in the community say the message is a message of tolerance, not condemnation.
“I think it’s a positive message,” said Lisa DePillis, executive director of GLBT Resource Center.
“I think there’s a need for people to see the message that this is a community that welcomes all people, and not just gay people.”
According to GLBT resource center, the billboard will be up in the Denver area until at least January, and will be a part of the city’s Pride Month, which runs through March.
The billboards are part of a campaign by the Human Rights Campaign to end discrimination in the workplace, housing and public accommodations.
HRC also partnered with the National Center for Transgender Equality to provide guidance to employers and other employers about the message.
