SF OccuPride 2012
SF Pride is next Sunday, and there is going to be a rather robust Radical Queer presence at the SF Pride parade. We’ve got a Coalition of groups and individuals all lined up and now we’re just in the final stages of outreach, getting as many people on board, especially those groups typically left out of Pride.
There are going to be several actions during the parade and a victory rally at the site of the Compton’s Cafeteria Riots after the parade. If you are in the SF Bay Area, please come to this event! Bring your friends and family, bring pots and pans for a casserole in solidarity with Quebec, bring banners, signs, your angst and rage at the state of the Queer Community, but most importantly, bring your smile and your hope. This action is going to show people that there is still a Queer Resistance and we’re pushing back against the commercialization and exploitation of our community!

* masks are OK (especially if pink and/or glittery!)
* please keep in mind, it’s a parade with a heavy police presence. there will be direct actions involving banks and other groups and we will have more info for the more ‘proactive’ members of our community at the rally point that morning (security concerns). we’ve consensed to keep the actual parade bloc a family friendly zone (no smashy smashy please).
We’re assembling at 10am at Mission and Main, and leaving at 10:30am SHARP. Please spread the word far and wide! Good luck and hope to see you there! <3
EDIT: the event is going to be livestreamed. we’ve got @pixplz, @punkboyinsf and others, so tune in 10:30am PST on Sunday 6/24 if you’re not in the Bay Area and you want to see some Radical Queers in action! <3
