SUNDAY, JULY 29TH
*AT 11:30 AM: meet
at the park on the corner of
Delormier & Ontario
*AT NOON sharp!:
we will LEAVE the park
to join the Pride Parade.
As Quebec gears up for the visit of George W. Bush, Stephen Harper and
Felipe Calderon, slashes sex ed programs across the province, and encourages
middle class gay assimilation while marginalizing queer youth, Montreal's
Gay Pride will kick off.
But Pride doesn't have to mean rainbow Molson flags and complicity with the
Village's pink capitalist-led persecution of sex workers, homeless people,
and all the others of us who haven't been Queer-Eyed.
Come help reclaim the parade's roots as a political protest by marching in
the PERVERS/CITE PINK BLOC!!!!
DRESS-CODE: PERVERSION CHIC
here are some ideas…
~Homo cops – ticketing the gaygeoisie
~Extra queerestrials - ALIENated by the pink dollar
~Anticapitalist army of lovers - cruising to recruit
~And of course, classic pink & black/ the glamourous skid look
The PERVERS/CITE organizing collective
opposes racism, sexism, capitalism,
transphobia, body fascism, colonialism,
classism and all other forms of
oppression and marginalization.
We aim to oppose the queer community's
total assimilation into mainstream kkkanadian culture,
as well as to foreground both a local history of queer radicalism
and social issues faced by queers today
that are consistently glossed over by the gaystream media
in favour of double-groom cakes and shopping holidays.
GET WITH IT!!!
