Speak-up Please: Queer Community Meeting on Living, Working and Gentrification in SF

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Yep. From Pride at Work.

Queer? Angry? Something on your mind? Well you’re in the right town, right? Hmm, good question. Activism seems a little play nice these days. Rally! Just don’t irritate people.

Um, maybe, but we still have tons of places to get wasted and trashy'.

Well, that depends.  You, say,  can’t hang out on the patio half the time at the Cinch anymore (as well as a few other spots) due to precious little condo denizens who just can’t take those noisy homos (and who also simultaneously killed off the ever-charming Charlie Horse.)  Never mind the place has been there since the dawn of time.

They need their sleep! Polk is clean now. Get out already.

Oh, yeah and find a place to live, vagrant.  Rents aren’t that bad. But a trifle really!

Could it be that Sodom-by-the Sea’s pricing out and simmering down its children? Well, I never!

Pride at Work/ HAVOQ seem to think there are a few issues in this here berg that may merit some discussion and will be doing so this coming Wednesday at CounterPulse with their night, Queer Workers: Class, Gentrification and Struggle in San Francisco.

Hash it out kids.

Stephen Torres - Threadbare-Fact Finder (Editor, San Francisco)

Stephen's early years were spent in a boxcar overlooking downtown Los Angeles. From there he moved around the state with his family before settling under the warm blanket of smog that covers suburban Southern California. Moving around led to his inability to stay in one place for very long, but San Francisco has been reeling him back in with its siren song since 1999.
By trade he pours booze, but likes to think he can write and does so occasionally for the SF Bay Guardian, Bold Italic and 7x7. He also likes to enjoy time spent in old eateries, bars and businesses that, by most standards, would have been condemned a long time ago.
