RALLY @ MACY'S
Gay Window Display
SUNDAY JUNE 11
10AM - 1PM
This Sunday bring your rainbows and anti-massresistance signs to rally, and then head to the block parties! Purchase rainbow flags at your local gay bookstore: Calamus Books.
We are calling on Macy's to admit they were wrong and apologize directly to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community for their offensive removal of the queer pride Mannequins and life-saving web addresses. We do not want watered down apologetic public relations sound bites. We want a real apology and an admission of wrongdoing. While the removal of the mannequins was severely offensive, the removal and return of the AIDS Action Committee web url was a direct slap in the face to our community during the 25th anniversary of the discovery of AIDS. Images of LGBT people will always offend the radical right so Macy's "striking a balance" excuse reeks of homophobia. Standing up for LGBT people is no balancing act. In the words of our illegitimate president George W. Bush, "you are either with us or against us."
When the mannequins are returned and a REAL apology is issued we will claim victory over MassResistance and bigotry.
This protest is as much about confronting and shutting down the voice of MassResistance and protesting Macy's irresponsible and silly decision.
To endorse this protest or if you have questions contact Mark Snyder @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 617.416.0552
