LBT Takeover [04 Oct 2005|05:38pm]

justapieceofme
Well, as many of you know, this past weekend was Gay Days at Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure. While I couldn't go to the evnt, I did work both days and walked the park a bit before and after work, and I've gotta say, I could not be more disappointed. This was for a variety of reasons, but here's my number-one issue: rather than a park full of my "family," I saw a park full of middle aged gay men. Where were the lesbians? The bisexuals? The transpeaople? Granted, I work at Hungry Bear, home of the "bear lover" meet-up, but still. I literally saw less than 5 red-shirt-clad women the entire weekend. Those I did were in their 40s. I began to realize that, despite having one meet-up a day specifically for women and a couple for youth, these men are the people Gay Days really target. And, for a 19-year-old dyke hoping to meet others like herself, this is damned disappointing.

So I'm proposing that we stage an LBT takeover. Either at next years' Gay Days or (this is my preference, especially because I don't feel like waiting another whole year after spending the whole last year looking forward to this), on our own day. Which is not to say your average, everyday gay man can't come, but this is not targeted at them. Just like we can come to Gay Days, but it's not targeted at us. Hell, we could even give the guys a little meet-up.

So, who's with me?

Official site for Anaheim Gay Days is here.

Rainbow Strike starts today [13 Mar 2004|09:13pm]

rawdolphin
Rainbow Strike* http://www.rainbowstrike.org/

http://www.idealswork.com/home.asp?from=/index.asp

The Rainbow Strike begins today!

Don't forget....if you are participating, the first Rainbow Strike starts today and continues for the next two weeks.

We're not saying you need to huddle naked in a dark corner of your unheated home and suffer the excruciating agony of caffeine withdrawal while you hum tunelessly to yourself - but the fewer goods and services you purchase for the next two weeks, the better.

Items that incur a sales tax should be avoided as much as possible. Items sold by companies that have supported anti-queer politicians or who have patently evil agendas should, obviously, be avoided until their policies change. Where possible, buy from queer-friendly companies.
Keep track of the money you would have spent on double foam lattes and bitchin' clubwear, and donate it to the pro-queer organization of your choice.

Tell as many people as you can about the strike, including the companies you are boycotting. Tell them why you aren't buying their product or service, and tell them that you demand change, now, or you will continue not being their customer.

Do it again at the end of the next fiscal quarter until we get heard and respected.

*I'm not part of organizing this & feel it's a great idea but needs to be more specific about what companies to *definetly* boycott & to take a good look at how interconnected companies are

Also, t-shirts & cards (by cafepress) are on the way. I don't see it's success without a way of letting orgs. Know we're striking against them. Or how people will be able to maintain the strike without community.

Any feedback, suggestions or t-shirt ideas can be directed here.

Queer Consumer Strike, March 13th through March 27th [26 Feb 2004|08:10pm]

rawdolphin
[ mood | excited ]

Please pass this on to as many people as you can. We can make an impact!!!
Information about an interactive Web site will soon follow

I am merely a messenger. Please post any comments at the original post. Respond at original post Website info will be posted there and I'll post it in your community as well.

I (epilady's co-worker) propose that we all go on a consumer strike for 2 weeks. From March 13th through March 27th, don't buy anything you don't need--no luxury or leisure items (which are often taxed at higher rates).

A friend/coworker of epilady wrote this letter. Look for a website with more details soon, but for now, pass this on
-------------------
Hello all,

During this human rights crisis, all of us - whether gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered-and our supporters need to take action if we want the same rights as other Americans.

It goes against everything America claims to stand for to manipulate the
constitution with discriminatory amendments. Protecting the civil rights of every American-not just the majority of Americans-is a part of the Constitution's original design.

President Bush and all of his supporters now trying to ban gay marriage need to feel the direct impact of our community. Remember that our nation is strongly capitalist based and it's all about money at the end of the day.

Sooo...
I propose that we all go on a consumer strike for 2 weeks. From March 13th through March 27th, don't buy anything you don't need--no luxury or leisure items (which are often taxed at higher rates).

If we aren't good enough to get married, then the states don't need our money, either. Let them feel it where it hurts. This is something that we all can do.

Please distribute this message widely!

I also suggest that we pledge to donate the $$ we would have spent that week to an org like MoveOn, HRC, or Millionformarriage and pass the list of pledge names on to major papers so they get the point that our money, our votes, and our lives are not to be trifled with.

Remember Valentine's Day? [25 Feb 2004|12:24pm]

rawdolphin


Last night I was about to climb the walls with anxiety over the 10,000 things I need to do on deadline. This political bs isn't helping since I'm already a "second-class citizen", I don't have a barrel full of cultural power to lose. I'm not pleased. For some odd reason, before I lit anything on fire, I thought jokingly, "so much for being a Taoist Master" (LOL -like, yeah right & no I'm not trying to convert anyone to Taoism lol). So, I put my unwilling self to bed as I knew sleep was the one place I couldn't get myself in trouble. I was asleep in 3 minutes. Didn't even realize how tired I was & then woke up feeling great. My point is that despite whatever is going on outside, take care of your health and whatever is going on inside.

Polls show that more Americans are becoming queer-friendly since Valentine's Day. And the beautiful smiles of the newly-weds & those waiting to be married show that being picketed and cold and wet from sleeping outside in the rain can not remove our basic human dignity or our courage to express our love in the face of hatred and stigma.

So, get enough sleep, take good care of yourselves, your friends, your families. Like it or not, we are now a WE and the game is on! Go Team Go!

I couldn't find any link for "don't let idiots get under your skin" but I found this: I think they recommend herbs & such, I'm in no way recommending them or connected to the site

Get Some Bush for V-day [11 Feb 2004|03:59pm]

X-posted

The President is playing politics with the Constitution for political gain in an election year - on the backs of families.

From The Washington Post, 2/11/04:  "Republican officials said Bush's decision to proceed now was driven partly by his desire to start the general election campaign on a fresh issue, at a time when his credibility has been battered by questions about prewar warnings of unconventional weapons in Iraq, as well as doubts raised by Democrats about his National Guard service."

1. Fax your members of Congress. Tell them to oppose the Musgrave anti-marriage amendment and any attempt to amend the Constitution to discriminate against GLBT Americans.  Click here or copy and paste this URL into your browser:  http://www.hrcactioncenter.org/campaign/bush_fma

Dealing with LJ hateful posts? [01 Feb 2004|11:13am]

rawdolphin
x-posted to various art or/and queer/lesbian/gay LJs

Hi,

I just want to know what people think the best thing to do when someone posts a really hateful message 
to a community board?

Obviously the guy vaporlock is wanting a fight so he can whine about freedom of speech and his rights. (I say this not knocking free speech, but dissing people who wank over it--oh that's freedom of expression)

I know Hate Speech is/has been treated differently then free speech (don't buy it that anyone can say anything otherwise I could legally say I was you or whatever)...but I was living under a rock when the whole M&M thing happened & perhaps now people can say any hateful thing at anytime?

but how does it make people feel? There's Neo-Nazi's on LJ but this guy just sounds like a jerk and I'm not certain I want to call attention to my LJ.

It's simply that I don't want to read this garbage in the morning when I first get up.

I thought this was a great idea.

I'm crossposting it to badgrrrls, gaySeattle, gaymafia, lesbianswithdisabilities, maybe elsewhere

Consider taking an ad out in your local paper for Valentines Day telling your partner/lover/girlfriend that you love her and would marry her if you could.
