No PRIDE in police brutality!

Glam Block the Cops at the Trans March. 

Seriously, what is this shit? 
We are calling on all radical queer and trans people to join us at the Trans March and let the police know they aren’t welcome here! 
Friday June 28th at the 2013 Trans March 

Meet at the start point of the trans march, George Hislop Park at 7:30 PM
Look for the Pink and Black flags and the anti-cop signs

In solidarity with all queer, trans, genderqueer and gender non-conforming people, in recognition of the history and continuing reality of police brutality and other forms of state violence against queer and trans people and queer and trans communities, especially queer and trans sex workers, queer and trans people of colour, queer and trans poor and homeless people, queer and trans disabled people and queer and trans people without status, we say TO HELL WITH THE POLICE.


Hey Toronto Police Services! You’re not welcome in this march, despite what the organizers say. You’re not welcome anywhere in our communities, even if some of you are gay. Kindly fuck off. 

We denounce the Trans March organizing committee’s decision to invite Toronto Police Services to the Trans March this year. We actually don’t really understand why you all felt it was necessary to ensure your demonstration was legal at all, and why one organizer suggested the police marching might be the ‘beginning of a beautiful friendship”. 

Stonewall was a riot, not a permitted rally! 
The Police work for a state that consistently and constantly enacts violence on marginalized communities, including trans people. So no, we don’t wanna be friends. 
Let’s build our community’s collective power to deal with our own problems.

Dress black and/or glam block, glitter glamarchist or pink and black fabulousness. 
Deck yourself out in rhinestones, don your heels or combat boots. 
Wear a strap-on, bring placards, flags and some fierce queer/trans anti-authoritarian attitude. 



In recognition of Prisoner Justice Day, and building up to the Queer & Trans Anarchist & Anti-Authoritarian Convergence August 23-25, QueerCore presents 

Jailbreak!, the next installment of the Queer Cover Band Show series. 

Prisoner Justice Day is an annual day of remembrance for prisoner lives lost and in recognition of the injustice, oppression and hypocrisy of the prison industrial complex. On Prisoner Justice Day, we show solidarity with those inside prison walls in their fight for humane treatment and better conditions, and work towards the eventual abolishment of the prison system. 
They may not be able to hear our songs, but in our hearts they are not forgotten. 
Pay tribute to their struggle. 
Bring your stories and songs of remembrance, resilience and resistance.
Light a candle. Light a fire. Let the flames engulf the prisons and the state. 
We’ll set this night ablaze and dance in the ashes.
Saturday August 10th 
Doors at     PM. Bands at    PM
Location: ???

$5 at the door or pay what you can. 
No one will be turned away for lack of funds (seriously, no one will be turned away)
Proceeds will go to supporting the work of the Prisoner Correspondence Project Toronto, which runs a letter writing program to Queer and Trans identified prisoners in the U.S and Canada. 

What is the Queer cover band show??
We are bored and tired of straight cis-gendered white dudes taking up the majority of space at shows. We want more rad folks to sing and play their hearts out. For too long we have been excluded. It’s time for our glittery selves to shine. 

This space is prioritizing queer/trans people of colour, black, indigenous, women and all those that are underrepresented and alienated from the music scene. Let’s build our own beats to break down barriers and help create a music scene that aims to be safe, inclusive and empowering. Have no shame in your skill level. You can do it!
What is Queercore Toronto?
Queecore, besides the wicked awesome music reference, is an autonomous collective of queer identified radicals in Toronto committed to injecting anti-capitalist political ideology into queer community organizing. We fight the pink washing of the police, the state and the corporations and will not be co-opted or assimilated into heteronormative, patriarchal, racist systems of exploitation and consumerism.
