"Good on all of you. Take back the streets, shut down the demagogues. I'm not suggesting violence, by the way -- that was counter-productive in the 60s. You guys are going it right. (And I don't mean right wing.)"

"Of all the things I despise (and its a long list), pinkwashing is in the top 3.  Like you I fucking EARNED my pride and I'll be damned if I will willingly let people abuse it or use it to promote their agendas (which usually suck)."

Of walls and more walls

by Tommi Avicolli MeccaYesterday, I was heading to the post office from my office via my usual short cut. I was in a rush to get there before it closed.Suddenly, I noticed a shiny new black iron fence in front of me. There was no way around it. I had to walk two blocks out of my way to get to where I wanted to go.It was obvious why that fence was there.In recent years, that area has had a lot of homeless encampments. Someone in their infinite cluelessness probably decided that an iron fence…See More

Profile Information

Bio
I am a writer, performer, singer/songwriter, activist and general rabble rouser whose works include several produced plays ("the aching in god's heart" was the last), four books ("Smash the Church, Smash the State: the early years of gay liberation" is the latest), countless articles, and songs (which you can hear at youtube.com/avimecca. Writing has always been my lifeline, keeping me sane in an insane world. I've been tapping away on the keyboard since I was 10 and writing plays for the neighborhood kids to perform. I'm southern Italian, queer, radical, atheist and tired of labels. LOL.

SF says NO to hate rally

Posted on August 27, 2017 at 10:00am 3 Comments

As we started the march yesterday morning from the Panhandle to Alamo Square Park to join up with folks from various other groups, I found myself looking every which way because I wasn't sure if we'd be attacked.

An atmosphere of fear had been created throughout San Francisco by news that a right-wing group called Patriot Prayer was coming to town to do a rally that would feature and draw white supremacists, Nazis and others. Charlottesville, where two week before an…

I STAND WITH THEM

Even though Ivanka Trump and hubbie Jared Kushner apparently convinced Daddy Dearest not to overturn the pro-LGBTQ executive order that was enacted by former president Barack Obama in 2014, I do not stand with Ivanka and Jared. I stand with them.

Even though in his statement, he, whom I call Not My President, said that he was “determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community,” I do not stand with him. I stand with…

Welcome!

With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the ABOUT tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.

Site News, Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy can also be found under the ABOUT tab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.

Bang around, explore, write, comment and most of all have fun!
