HRC’s national dinner is one of the most glaring examples of the mainstream LGBT movement’s myopic attempt to align itself with big corporations, weapons manufacturers, out of touch politicians, predatory banks, and wealthy donors. This year is no different, just look at the dinner’s Presenting Sponsor: Wells Fargo.
In the current political climate, when people of color, trans folks, immigrants, and working class folks are under attack, HRC continues to celebrate and promote – of all possible corporate sponsors – Wells Fargo.
Racism isn’t just a by-product of Wells Fargo’s actions – it is at the core of its practices across the board. From its financing of the private prison system, immigrant detention facilities and the Dakota Access Pipeline to its predatory lending practices that target communities of color, to the way it treats its own employees, Wells Fargo demonstrates a toxic disregard – if not outright disdain – for people of color, immigrants and Native communities.
HRC needs a wake up call.
At this year’s national dinner, that’s exactly what we’ll provide. This year our radical dream of trans and queer liberation is back from the dead.
No Justice No Pride is planning a fabulous, frightening, and festive disruption of HRC’s annual corporate clusterfuck. Join us outside the convention center on October 28th, where we’ll dress up as Zombies and give HRC something to be afraid of. Let’s show that trans and queer folks will no longer accept HRC’s complicity with institutional racism, Native genocide, and mass deportation. The movement for trans and queer liberation used to be something radical and beautiful – something we could really be proud of. Let’s bring it back from the dead.
