What’a we want?
When d’we want it?
Maybe a good place to start addressing the problem of handguns in America is to stop glamorizing them. Ya think?… and stop pointing them at me when I’m on the subway!
Who’s designing these tired, trite two-sheets anyway? They are a just a joke at this point. Yeah, Tom Cruise holding a gun on a red background…that’ll really bring ’em in. Idiots. Is it just the result of a phone call from some exec who says, “Gimme one with the gun and one without in case there’s a school nearby?”
Fucking stupid shitty gun glamorization thats what it is. It’s wrong and it’s harmful.
And while I have your ear, bring back tap dancing for fuck’s sake! Nobody ever got inspired to go on a killing spree with a tap shoe, did they?
See there? – you thought I was just another flaky Gay Against Guns. Well, Mr. Wood, Mr. Holly Wood…I AM!
Category is: Marshalls Realness (first time up in parade, OK)
Attention GAGgers, we want our Resistance Contingent in Sunday’s Pride March to SHINE and live up to the standard we set last year, when we won the Best Marching Contingent. For it to all go as smoothly and impactfully as we want, Marshals will be crucial. If you can do it and commit to a one hour marshal training on Friday at 7:00pm at the LGBT Center, please email Jay at
with the subject line: Marshal Training.
No guns or you will be CHOPPED!
From the Gay Pride Parade NYC 2016
Go full screen. Theres a lot to see.
Okay? Showing Out. Coming correct and garnering international acclaim with our initial notices. We are GAG. New York was GAGging.
Gays Against Guns, a new gun-control advocacy group, held “NRA Stay Away” and “NRA prepare to GAG” signs to wild applause.
According to a pamphlet, the group was formed to “stop the life-threatening convergence of homophobia and flawed gun policy.”
The group’s mission is to formalize “our responsibility” and create “our place within the larger pre-existing gun control movement through action.”
Jessica Dickerson, 32, who is a lesbian from Tampa, Fla., said she supports the gun-control issue.
“Things like Orlando are going to happen and the fact that anyone can carry a gun is a problem,” she said. “Guns are made for one purpose and if you have a gun, you’re probably going to use it. Peoples lives shouldn’t end this way. This is about love.”
The issue in Orlando was targeted, she said. “And now we feel particularly threatened. And guns were the problem.”
Signs referencing gun violence dotted the entire parade.
Earlier, a group of people covered in white veils, some carrying white parasols marched in a moment of silence for the victims.
And around 2 p.m., on the corner of West 8th Street and Fifth Avenue, one marcher held a sign reading: “Thou shalt not inflict thou hate on others.”
Marchers fell to the ground in front of the Stonewall Inn, in a form of protest known as a die-in, as another marcher, Bruce Kreuger, 65, stood holding a sign written in Arabic.
It said, he said, “Gays against guns.”
“I’m not Arab and I’m not gay but I’m really, really against guns,” Mr. Kreuger said. “I thought when I saw the sign if there are any gay Muslims out there, they’d take a look at that and say, ‘Hey I’m not alone.’”
