Calling all flamboyant queens, movie stars, celebutants!

Gay Shame and folks living in the Mission District have been in outrage about local sites targeted by landlord arson and gentrification, locations which neighbor a luxury condo named Vida and the New Mission Theatre. These developments draw in and house newly-transplanted suburban techies, home realtors and tourists. They also add to suspicious increases in violence against vulnerable long-time residents, murdering those living on the street or in encampments, destroying street culture, surveillance, heightened gentrification and displacement.

DRESS TO IMPRESS for the blood- red carpet!
Come as your problematic fave!
• Arsonists
• Bay to Breakers Bros
• Burning Man Bros
•Sarah Slocum

Hosted by Gay Shame with guest appearances by Ed Lee, Greg Suhr, Nicolo Machiavelli, Beyonce, Hawk Ling Lou, Wes Anderson, Miranda July, Mark Zuckerberg, Dropbox Soccer Devil, Sonja Trauss, and Tim League.

Come prepared with props, enthusiasm and theatrics to confront the greed and violence represented by the New Mission Theatre. Witness artisanal brogrammer cino-philes IRL in 3-D!

Why? Just 'cause hush money won't stop us. This will be an Alamo to remember.
