QueerToday.com Organizing HRC Protest in Boston

Boston – QueerToday.com activists and allies will protest the annual
Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Dinner at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston on October 25 at 5pm.

The group is working to build a coalition of trans and queer activists, anti-war activists, and women’s rights activists to protest HRC’s lack of grassroots coalition building, support for pro-war and anti-choice candidates, and support of a non-inclusive version of the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA).

“It’s time to show HRC what real solidarity looks like,” said Trevor Wright of QueerToday.com, “transgender and labor activists united in San Francisco to build the largest protest ever of HRC, and we plan to show the country Boston can too!”

Organizing protests is not new to QueerToday.com activists. The group formed the largest ever protest of Focus On The Family in 2005 by joining forces with the local anti-war movement, and has organized and endorsed countless other protests throughout the past 6 years.

“HRC has spent millions of dollars on fighting losing marriage battles throughout the country but has done little to help grassroots organizers make the world a safer place for queer youth and the trans
community. We’ve had enough. HRC does not speak for us,” said Jake Harpin, a transgender activist with QueerToday.com.

Boston on October 25 at 5pm.
