Not feeling Pride this year, with all its commercialism and corporate sponsorship? Tired of seeing queer culture co-opted by big companies who care more about their bottom line than what it really means to be queer? Come out to Gay Shame's Cry-In! Make sure to bring your most morbidly gothic clothing, your favorite sad songs, and an appropriately morose attitude! Join other queer people and allies in protesting the commercialization of our community through singing sad songs, reading eulogies for the demise of the grassroots queer community, and putting on your best Goth face. We'll be meeting outside the LGBT Center at 2 PM on Pride Sunday June 27th.
