George Michael died today.
25 June 1963 – 25 December 2016
This Thursday December 15 We eat hate like love at Bar Pink, with live performances by Head Wound City (members from The Locust, The Blood Brothers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and The Blind Shake (Minneapolis), a raffle from local businesses includes items like tattoo gift certificates, works of art, hair services, clothing, and more.
All proceeds will be donated the The San Diego LGBTQ Community Center.
Get tickets here.
“A few people have asked why we chose The Center to donate the proceeds of We Eat Hate Like Love. Arguably, there are many people in need right now and many groups under fire from the incoming administration. First, we don’t intend to stop here. Second, with a VP elect coming into office who has such a strong anti-gay record it is our duty to counter act those hateful actions with a show of strong support. People march and protest and write bills and sign things – Chrissy and I, with a lot of help from friends and acquaintances, are putting together a show and bitching raffle that will be a vessel through which we can not only have fun but give to an organization whose members are in the cross hairs.
Here is some additional info on The Center
The Center provides direct services to the many different facets of the LGBT community, including men, women, youth, seniors, families, LGBT Latino community members and their families, as well as those struggling with HIV. The Center has more than 41 years of experience as a health and human services agency. Last year The Center provided 61,550 service visits to 26,671 unique clients a year: 54% of them are people of color, 42% of them women and 12% of Center clients are Transgender.” – Katie Serbian

ANOHNI IMPLORES PRESIDENT OBAMA TO FREE CHELSEA MANNING
Condemned under Obama’s administration to 35 years for blowing the whistle on US war crimes, America’s number one political prisoner is a transgendered former soldier who sits in solitary confinement after leaking video footage of US drone execution of a Reuters journalist.
“OBAMA, I voted for you. I campaigned for you across Europe.
Like thousands of others, in the newspapers and on TV, I told European press that you were a feminist, a kind and reasonable man, a just and fair man, that you would restore our country’s dignity.
OBAMA, Please let Chelsea Manning out of prison.
Recognize her tremendous sacrifice, and her vulnerability.
With Trump incoming, if you leave Chelsea in prison,
she will never see the light of day, or worse.
If you leave Chelsea Manning in prison for whistle blowing
You send the final message to our nation
that the Obama administration brutally punished moral courage
in these unforgiving United States.
She has suffered Enough, President Obama.
She poses no threat.
Show us the heart of the Obama administration now.
The election is over.
There is no political advantage left in allowing Chelsea to perish in prison.
Have mercy on her, Obama,
friend of the trans community:
I implore you to Free Chelsea Manning.”
