Love and Rage from so-called Central Vermont

As the sun set over the mountains and the songbirds began to hush, we crept onto a highway overpass to offer a small gesture of solidarity

catharsis against every queerphobe who has ever dared to mess with us and those we care about. Read More …

San Francisco Solidarity Action With Cedar

Anonymous Submission to North Shore Counter-Info We glued the locks of the gentrifying business Manny’s and tagged a circle-A and “Free Cedar.” Manny’s is run by a Democratic Party operative who worked as an LGBT advisor to the Obama administration and as a top fundraiser for the Hillary Clinton campaign in Silicon Valley.

Submitted anonymously to North Shore. 28 June 2019 – Hamilton, ON It’s been two weeks since a band of homophobic preachers crashed Pride and the rainbowed crowd defended itself.
