Activists Protest Firing of Vincent Atos for Labor Organizing and Being "Too Gay"
Pride @ Work, the Harvey Milk Club, and labor activists held a fabulous protest on Saturday, June 19th, to protest the firing of Vincent Atos from Hornblower/Alcatraz Cruises for organizing a union and allegedly (this is an actual quote from Human Resources) acting “too gay” at work.

Since managers told Vincent before he was fired that he was acting “too gay” at work, we decided to have a picket that was “too gay” for Hornblower. Picketers dressed in sailor suits paraded down a red carpet runway dancing to the music of the Brass Liberation Orchestra. Protesters got on the local news and were able to send a message to Alcatraz Cruises that we won’t tolerate union-busting and homophobia in San Francisco.
