Protest Sharon Needles’ Racist Actions - Wednesday (6/27) @ Jungle Club Atlanta
Sharon Needles has some shit she needs to work on. For receipts, see grrylman’s post here.
And lucky for us, she’ll be at the Jungle Club in Atlanta, Georgia this Wednesday (6/27). Let’s all get together for a lovely time of protest and dissent over the ridiculous racist behavior of Sharon Needles.
Our plan is to assemble outside of the Jungle with signs, badges, and other militant items of fabulousness.
We will then join the line and move through informing people of Sharon’s racist statements and actions. Keep it peaceful, keep it simple, keep it classy.
Some of the attendees are going to be very angry with us. We have to know this before going. This demonstration is not violent, and we are asking that all demonstrators please refrain from engaging with anyone who wants to argue. We’re only demonstrating to speak the truth.
In other words: if someone tries to throw shade your way you just do you gurl.
When we’re done, we’ll move over to The Heretic for .25 cent beer night. Protest will start promptly at 9:00pm and go until 10:00pm.
Invite your friends!

I’m sure y’all have seen the video of a young black man being beaten by three other men while they screamed, “no faggots in Jack City” in Atlanta. The beating took place down the street from my neighborhood in SW Atlanta. There’s going to be a rally near the site of the attack on Saturday. If you live in Atlanta, please try to make it.
From the event page:
A rally against hate crimes in our city and to support the healing of the Pittsburg community after the vicious attack on a presumably young gay male, Brandon White. We are uniting against the violence and for the healing of our community. Stay tuned for more details …. all communities are encouraged to attend and show your support. Police will be there for security. Want to help out, inbox me. Spread the Word!
