As we’ve often surmised before, a quick glance at San Francisco on any given day is essentially an inventory of things we’ve lost.  Sure, the legacy business closures and demolitions are reams long, but even longer and more crushing is the list of citizens expunged by either economic or even lethal force.

Three years ago when it seemed things were hitting a fever pitch and we had no idea how “tepid” things still were, the Black Glitter Collective released their viral triumph “Google, Google, Apps, Apps”.  Enthusiastically embraced by those who knew its truth and lambasted by our resident titans in teapots and their sycophantic egg shell walkers, the video was an indictment of what is now considered commonplace.

Sadly, the video was an accurate prognostication of even their own fate, as that like their dazzling namesake, some members were not only scattered to the East Bay, but even farther a foot, victims themselves of this ongoing whitewash, seemingly nearing it final rinse and spin.

But before you add the bleach just yet, remember one thing: as any queen knows- glitter is a bitch to get rid of, and indeed the collective is reuniting this Saturday afternoon at that darling queer romper room, Virgil’s, for a one-off that is sure to blow it’s load all over over you.  So fluff and fold that.

In addition ,beyond being activistas, some of these queers pay their rent by helping at CASA, which aside from being a delight, was recently broken into and robbed of all their technical support not once but TWICE.  So, as gente do, when you aren’t getting any help from above, you throw a party and have a fundraiser, so be sure to bring some plata.

Smell you there jotos.

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.
