Stonewall Was A Rebellion! – Contingent at Pride Parade
June 30, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC+0
It’s the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riot, and this pride month is going to be a hell storm of rainbow capitalism and historical revisionism.
To help counter the mainstream trivialization of Stonewall, we invite you to join our contingent in this year’s Pride Parade organized around the theme that “Stonewall was a rebellion against police brutality.” Ours will be a breath of fresh air vs. the corporate Pride of beer and bank floats, as we get relevant, radical LGBTQ politics in front of an audience of 1 million+ people.
Meet up at 11am in front of the Uptown Target store, 4466 N. Broadway, 1 block south of the main exit of the Wilson Red Line stop. Plenty of water and sunscreen will be available. If you are not able to participate in the entire march, we encourage you to attend the first (and best!) part of it, and then drop out when you need to. There are a handful of L stops fairly close to the parade route to which we can direct you if you need to leave early.
