Hella Queer Oakland March To Disco Is Averted Due To Discrimination!
Hella Queer Oakland March to the Uptown is diverted back to Occupy Oakland.
The march started late last night at the Occupy Oakland encampment at 14th and Broadway, made it's way north and circled back to Telegraph to approach the Uptown. Slogans chanted were; "We're here, we're queer, we're fabulous, don't fuck with us! We're here, we're queer, we're fabulous, we'll fuck you up!" DJs at Oscar Grant plaza were amazing. I left because I don't really think I appreciate the Uptown. Some time later at the plaza, I had had enough music and was approaching a homeward vector when I noticed many protesters make their way back to the plaza. Apparently a handicapped person with a cane was asked to leave the Uptown, and a person with a certified seeing eye dog was turned away, so an exiting protest was devised.
