The City of West Hollywood will proclaim Wednesday, May 23 as “Stormy Daniels Day,” as Mayor John Duran and other city officials will present the adult film actress with the key to the city.

Keeping up with the theme, Daniels will receive the award at Chi Chi LaRue, the erotica store on Santa Monica Boulevard.

“Stormy Daniels is the most courageous woman in America right now taking on the biggest bully in the country,” Duran, told TheWrap. “Donald Trump is a continuing threat to the LGBT community and immigrants in West Hollywood. It’s going to be my great honor to present her with the key to the city.”

According to the city’s announcement Daniels is being recognized for her “leadership in the #Resist movement.”

“In these politically tumultuous times, Daniels has proven herself to be a profile in courage by speaking truth to power even under threats to her safety and extreme intimidation,” the statement read. “Following the election of President Trump, the West Hollywood City Council affirmed the City of West Hollywood’s commitment as a sanctuary city and reaffirmed the City’s commitment to its core values, which includes respect and support for people.”

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing Trump to vacate the nondisclosure agreement she signed in 2016 for $130,000 paid by Cohen. Daniels said the NDA was to keep her quiet about a supposed affair with the president a decade earlier.

She is also suing Trump for defamation after he called some of her statements “fraud” on Twitter. The transaction is now under investigation for possible campaign finance violations. Cohen is also under investigation for bank fraud.
