Queer Liberaction, the newly formed LGBT direct action group, will hold its firstÂ ”Milk box” at 4 p.m. Sunday in front of the now-closed Crossroads Market at Cedar Springs and Throckmorton. The group says MIlk box, in honor of Harvey MIlk,Â is a chance “to publicly speak our mind and educate Dallas’s Queer Community as to exactly how we are being oppressed.” Read the full press release after the jump.
Queer Liberaction Kicks Off Milk Box
What is Queer Liberaction’s “Milk box” you might be asking yourself. Â It is a way to celebrate our freedom of speech, but instead of getting up on a soapbox we will be getting up on a Milk box in honor of Harvey Milk. Our rights might be able to be taken from us, but they will never be able to steal our voice. Â
Help Queer Liberaction kick the Milk box off rightÂ this Sunday at 4:00 PM. We will meet at the corner ofÂ Throckmorton and Cedar SpringsÂ in front of the old Crossroads Bookstore to publicly speak our mind and educate Dallas’s Queer Community as to exactly how we are being oppressed. Angry over the current state of things, or tickled pink? Â Come tell Dallas Gays and Lesbians about it or just come and listen and help hand out flyers. Anyone and everyone is welcome!
If you haven’t already done so, be sure to put our upcoming events on your calendar. QL will stage aÂ Queer kiss-inÂ on Saturday, February 7 at noon. This will take place by the Dallas Museum of Art at Ross and Harwood in Downtown Dallas. Also, be sure to attend our bigÂ Freedom to Marry Day demonstrationÂ at 11:30 am on Thursday, February 12. The festivities will begin in Founder’s Plaza outside the Records Building at 509 Main St. Â
Queer Liberaction is also in need of a few things to help make the Freedom to Marry Day demonstration a success. Please contact us if you’re able to help us with any of the following.
* Limousine rental for a couple hours
* Flowers, bouquets of flowers
* Rice, flower petals to throw, bubbles
* Poster board
