Event description
Our inaugural event to introduce our #queerresistance and unique style to the public.this is NOT an insurgency or an event in which violence or violent rhetoric will be in any way sanctioned
The idea here is to use the imagery of funerals and mourning to draw attention to the fight we have on the horizon. We plan toacquire a fake coffin, drape it in a rainbow flag, dress in our freakiest funeral attire and march it through downtown with a funeral dirge playing as an act of mourning for and calling attention to the explicit threats and assaults already being made from positions of power and influence against our rights and well beings; ending with a ceremony and a "laying to rest" of the coffin before a mock headstone we will set up, laying flowers across it.
