A painting of me

"Our action was in the tradition of resistance that is Pride. We didn’t halt progress; we made progress." ⇒

Black Lives Matter TO—a group led by several queer and trans women, also the guests of honour at Pride—staged a sit in during the parade and people lost their shit. Of course they did. This is Toronto and there is no crime greater than inconvenience. Still, Black Lives Matter TO protests and they get shit done. The video of the sit in is amazing to watch.

  1. I am not sure how I feel about removing all police floats from Pride. I feel like seeing the police and municipal leaders present is important. For a group that is all about being inclusive that seems a bit contradictory.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
