This is not organized by the Occupride working group, but the idea is similar.

We think that having to pay to dance and celebrate – or not being able to attend our “community’s” big events because they’re 21 and up – is BORING.

We don’t need a permit from the police – the same people who kick us out of our houses, lock us up in jail, and beat us on the street – to have a good time!

Hate crimes legislation, gay marriage, and queers in the military are tools of capitalism, racism, patriarchy, and the prison industrial complex. F&CK ‘EM. Queer insurrection now!

((This is not an Occupy event. People affiliated with Occupy are welcome to attend as long as you don’t try to limit how anyone else resists the people and institutions that oppress us. Stonewall was a riot, not a tradeshow.))
