|Import this event into your personal calendar.|
|GAY SHAME meets every Saturday in the backroom of Modern Times Bookstore @ Valencia btw 19th & 20th. Meeting time is 5:30PM, which means that people begin to arrive at 5:30PM and we start the meeting no later than 5:45PM. In addition, we often hold smaller meetings throughout the week to plan specific actions and activities.|
Our largest project as of now is combating the gentrification of the Polk. However, we have open meetings so if you would like to bring your amazing ideas or get involved in art, decadence and resistance come on down.
Statement of Purpose
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. GAY SHAME is a celebration of resistance: all are welcome.
