I’ve got something to say. I’ve always felt like I had something to say, but it wasn’t until this weekend that I was finally given the proper venue to express myself. I arrived at the San Francisco gay pride parade expecting to simply gawk at go-go boys and cheer on the good people at PFLAG, but when a member of OccuPride recruited me from the stands to join in their march, I soon discovered the true meaning of Pride and I became extremely enraged. The system is fucked.
I’m still very angry right now, and to be honest I’m just not going to take it anymore. OccuPride has awakened the sleeping giant in me, and I won’t stop until everyone in the GLBTTSQQIDDI community—gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, transsexual, straight, questioning, queer, interested, disinterested, disabled, intersexed—has a seat at the table.
It’s time for everyone to take a stand against the injustices being perpetrated against us by the powers that be and the puppet masters and the privileged few in the upper classes who control the systems that are working to keep us from full socioeconomic equality.
It’s time to stand for feminism, queers, AIDS, and anarchy! If you’re not angry, you haven’t been paying attention!!
Capitalism, workers’ rights, AIDS, fabulousness, gender discrimination, banks, prison overcrowding, and the transgendered. Bradley Manning.
Religion. Gay bashing. Israel and Palestine. Trans healthcare. How much more are we supposed to take? I found my voice at the San Francisco gay pride parade (via a bullhorn) with OccuPride.
Fuck AIDS. Fuck the people who give you AIDS (not literally, unless you want to catch AIDS!), and fuck the people who make the drugs that fight AIDS. Fuck it all. I am so angry right now, and I will not rest until I’m not angry anymore.
I never knew that I would discover what really mattered and what my true purpose would be (setting police cars on fire) just by going to a silly little gay pride parade, but the truth has a funny way of finding you when you least expect it. An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
The time for action is now.
I’m going to use my blog to get the message out. I’m going to spread the OccuPride message across the blogosphere and participate in other marches and parades to express my rage. I am enraged. I’m not exactly sure why, but now I know who I am because I found my voice with OccuPride SF at the gay pride parade yesterday.
Fuck this world and fuck the system. Join me in spreading the OccuPride message. Join me in being extremely angry. Because if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.
