Trans and Queer #ResistDance Against White Supremacy

On August 12, the Unite the Right rally will descend onto our city, bringing dozens of nazis and white supremacists into our communities. As a part of a larger collective and organizations working to combat white nationalism, get ready to join your friends, neighbors, and fabulous strangers for the #ResisDance!

While nazis and white supremacists spread an ideology of racism and genocide, we are here to fiercely and unapologetically celebrate our communities and our existence - and of course drown them out with bumpin’ beats and lots of rainbow biodegradable confetti!

If you have been to a previous dance protest, we want to be clear that this will be a bit different. We are taking many steps to ensure that we create a safe environment, but we also recognize that we are dealing with people whose ideology encourages (and necessitates) violence. We want to acknowledge this risk and share that we're taking precautions for our protection while also recognizing the vital importance of resisting.

As these individuals descend on our city, now is the time to show up and let them know that their legacy of violence is over. We're trans. We're queer. We're fabulous. We're sick of your Nazi shit. Don't fuck with us.
