Qockblockade Brigade: Queer Resistance on J20

  • Mcpherson Square Park

Come join the qockblockade brigade as we hold a queer anti-Inauguration party at a security checkpoint! In the face of threats to our safety and our rights, we want to remind Inauguration attendees, as well as the world, that we’re here, we’re queer, and we’re not going back in the closet. 

Come dance, hold a banner, or participate however you'd like! Bring your glitter, rainbow flags, face paint, angel wings - bring it all! (although don’t bring any of the prohibited items, found here: http://bit.ly/2jx7TLt). Please don't come empty-handed: the least you can do is bring a friend!

Even though we're taking over a security checkpoint, we’re there to have a good time - have fun, dance, celebrate our queer identities - no matter how anyone else reacts. This is NOT a space to instigate, and we will not be trying to provoke arrest. 

To make sure you can make it out to celebrate the queerdom, check out this link on road closures and transportation options: http://wtop.com/inauguration/2017/01/inauguration-day-2017-survival-guide-street-closures-metro-service-parade-route/

We will see y'all in the streets!
