As LGBTQ Pride approaches, in the spirit of May Day 2012 in Seattle, the Nike store alongside a major street in Portland, Oregon had about half of its front windows smashed out with a baseball bat late in the night a few weeks ago.

As the Portland 'LGBTQ' Pride NW festival and parade approaches, we queers cringe in disgust while corporate branding dominates the whole of the festivities.

This action taken in memory of three trans women of color who were murdered last month, Kelly Young, Ashley Sinclair, and Cemia "Ce Ce" Dove. Your beauty lives on through our rage!

Also taken in solidarity with those resisting the PNW grand jury, especially those who have been displaced by the state, and to show that action is still possible under the watchful eye of the FBI.
