Please forward to all your friends and lists!

This is an invitation...

To show that Worcester's got an alternative to anti-Queer hate...

Come do a QUEER KISS-IN at Mechanic's Hall, Feb. 18th, 2006!!!

The anti-queer, anti-LGBT Mr. Hetero event is coming to Worcester at Mechanics Hall. A lot of queer folks and allied people are pretty upset about the hateful nature of the event (you can check out the guy's blog, (http://www.mrhetero.com/.)

But there is an alternative! We will be staging the Kiss-In to show people that queer love is where it's at, and hate has got no place in Worcester.

If you don't feel like participating in queer kiss-in fun, there's also a candlelight vigil called by iworcester for Feb. 18th. Check out http://www.iworcester.com for details. (Organizers of the candlelight vigil have asked we clarify that the kiss-in is in no
way connected to or reflective of their event.)

Kiss-Ins have a proud place as political acts in queer history. Queer Nation used to do same-sex kiss-ins in places like malls in the middle of suburbia, a fun way to turn the entire homophobic anti-queer climate on its head. Recently, kiss-ins sprang up in the protests at the Republican National Convention. In the streets of NYC during the convention, you
could hear people yelling 'We're Here. We're Queer. We're Fabulous. Don't f*ck with us!"

Hate speech sucks. Queer love is an awesome alternative. Come join us!

Wouldn't it be funny if these homos got the Puzzles treatment? You should get back in your closet unless you want trouble.

rather hear a fat boy fart, than a pretty girl sigh. Boy that sure is an "attractive" alternative.
