Sunday was the official parade on Market St.

While pride marches started as protests, many activists now see them as celebrations of the status quo. On Sunday, June 27th at 2pm, Gay Shame protested at the SF LGBT Center against the corporatism and assimilation of the Pride celebrations. Gay Shame writes: "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." imc_photo.gif Photos: 1 | 2 | 3

On Thursday, June 17th Queers United Against Israeli Terrorism (QUIT!) called a protest at the Castro Theater against the Isreali Consulate's sponsorship of the San Francisco LGBT Film Festival. imc_photo.gifPhotos
