You are now in Gay Hell, Michigan: Hell, Michigan, renamed for Pride Month, says YouTube star

The town of Hell, Michigan, apparently has a new name.

A Youtube star changed the town's name to "Gay Hell" after paying to be the town's mayor for a few days during Pride Month, according to CNN .

During his first hours as mayor, Elijah Daniel tweeted, "Gay Hell, Michigan has everything. A library, a place to lock your love in Gay Hell, and even a wedding chapel to get gay married in hell!"

Daniel, who is openly gay, said he was inspired to buy the town after the Trump administration banned U.S. embassies and consulates from flying rainbow flags during Pride Month this year.

Daniel said he is in the process of purchasing the town permanently.
