Calling all radical queers! (And straight allies)

Saturday, October 25th, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) the largest, mainstream gay rights lobbying organization in the country, will be having their annual gala dinner in Boston. Join radical queer activists in protesting the HRC’s transphobic, right-wing policies.

The HRC has, time and again, ignored and tokenized transpeople and supported right-wing politicians. It is time to show the HRC and the public that they do NOT represent us!

I am trying to organize a providence contingent for the protest, as part of the What Queer?! collective. If you are interested, please email All are welcome.

Please forward widely.
