Journalists adore Amendment 1 of the United States Constitution. To us, it’s the Beyoncé of constitutional amendments; we’re always talking about who wore it better. We might have a new answer to that question on January 16—Martin Luther King Day—when the Erotic Heritage Museum unveils a huge banner of the amendment’s wording. But you won’t be able to see it from the street: EHM director Victoria Hartmann says the banner will cover “a sizable amount” of the museum’s roof—specifically, the part of the roof that faces the Trump tower.

A drone-shot video of the installation will be posted to EHM’s social media soon after, or you can just peep it from next door. Hartmann says the museum’s motivations are exactly as they seem: “We want to serve as a reminder to our president-elect that our constitutional rights are sacred,” she says.
