For immediate Release

December 8, 2008

From: Join The Impact SF.

Contact: Ryan Rudnick ryan.rudnick@gmail.com, Cat Kim, protest8sf@gmail.com

Day Without a Gay (Lesbian/Bi/Trans/Queer/Intersex) is coming up December 10th!

What: A rally at 24th & Mission, followed by a march up Valencia to the SF LGBT Center (Market & Octavia).

Who: Assemblyman Tom Ammiano;Andrea Shorter, the campaign director of And Marriage for All; Renee Saucedo, Founder of INS Watch; Cat Kim, organizer of Join The Impact SF; Gregg Cassin, Inspirational Speaker.

When: Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2008, 6:00 P.M.

Where: 24th and Mission St., San Francisco, CA [BART: 24th & Mission]

How: RSVP to the Facebook event at Day Without A Gay – San Francisco. And please pass this message to everyone!

Why: To show support for American civil rights and equality for all, including gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals, queers, and intersexuals. Our intent is to show everyone else that this movement is not a flash in the pan. The 21st century Civil Rights Movement is not going to disappear. Victims of discrimination are not going to quietly and passively wait for
our rights. And our communities will never forget Prop. 8 and the constant hatred that people face simply for living in a sexist, paranoid world.

Demonstrations show politicians, the media, and society at large that there is widespread, powerful, and vocal support for civil rights. Demonstrations bring us together as a community and show that both GLBTQI and their straight friends are united in this fight. Wednesday, Dec. 10 is the next big protest – it is time for everyone to gear up, make your signs, and come with enthusiasm and all the courage of your convictions!

  1. As a femme who recently got married with my Butch ( yep, lesbian ) legally in Montreal, Canada i just want to let you all know that i fully support your efforts to have your voices and hearts heard. I am shocked by the way LGBT’s are mistreated in the USA ( not perfect here either but we can be married at least ).
    Btw, i’m also a woman of transsexual experience and born with an intersex condition to boot.
    I think it may be time for the type of civil disobedience that worked so well for African americans; go out there and use the bathroom of your choice, kiss your lover out in the open, insist on being allowed to get legally married under the law, demonstrate, stand up during political meets and speak up and yes you will be arrested, maybe even beaten but i fear this is the price to pay so that cis society’s hearts and minds open up to us and understands that we are all part of one family in the end.

    in solidarity,

    Circé
