Michigan Town Renamed 'Gay Hell' After Purchase by YouTuber

YouTuber Elijah Daniel Buys Michigan Town, Renames It 'Gay Hell' After Trump's Pride Flags Ban

In honor of the world coming together to celebrate the LGBTQ community this June, the YouTube star bought the town of Hell, Michigan, and renamed it Gay Hell.

In 2017, Daniel pulled a similar stunt by becoming mayor of Hell for one day and banning all heterosexual people in the town. It's making National News.

It is unclear how much Elijah Daniel paid to be the temporary owner of the town.

The reason behind this is all political and I don't like talking politics but I do think this is very amusing.

"So as of today, I am now the owner of Hell, Michigan".

If you have never been to Gay Hell, it's worth it just to check off your bucket list.

The town is about 24 kilometres northwest of Ann Arbor and is believed to have a population of about 70 people, according to NBC.

The 25-year-old announced on Tuesday that he'd officially purchased the entire town for two weeks in an act of protest against Trump, who recently rejected US embassy requests to fly the rainbow Pride flag during June's LGBTQ2 Pride Month.

All surfaces and utensils should be properly cleaned after contact with flour or uncooked dough or batter, the FDA said. They begin, on average, three to four days after ingesting the bacteria and most people recover in about a week.

Daniel is from MI and says that he always drove past the town growing up.

The YouTuber told CNN that the move was a way of "getting my audience involved in politics by doing it in a amusing way".

The reaction has been "pretty good" with his fans, Daniel said, along with "a lot of upset Trump fans".

So Daniel figured that Gay Hell would be ideal in a rural, religious area.

"Ahead of pride month Trump's administration put a ban on embassy's [sic] flying pride flags", Daniel tweeted.

Daniel told NBC News that his flag rule is a joke, and there will not be a ban on other flags.

Daniel has more than 500,000 YouTube subscribers and more than 625,000 followers on Twitter.
