#evictTWITTERandfriends strategy meeting with Gay Shame
Sunday, August 12, 2012 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An initial planning meeting to figure out the connections around the “revitalization of mid-market” (Twitter, Burning Man, cops, AAU, SF Arts Commission, Jane Kim). These people, and more, are working hard to gentrify the neighborhood and eviscerate the existing folks already living there.
GAY SHAME is a Virus in the System. We are committed to a queer extravaganza that brings direct action to astounding levels of theatricality. We will not be satisfied with a commercialized gay identity that denies the intrinsic links between queer struggle and challenging power. We seek nothing less than a new queer activism that foregrounds race, class, gender and sexuality, to counter the self-serving “values” of gay consumerism and the increasingly hypocritical left. We are dedicated to fighting the rabid assimilationist monster with a devastating mobilization of queer brilliance.
