Here is a leaflet and sign posting we did a few years back. These leaflets were posted around downtown Hartford and passed out in the streets. We said why not post it again 17 years later.

Notes:

(1)  From the Black Orchid Collective is Queer Liberation and Class Struggle. JOMO says about this flag, “my friend, Sarah Hopkins, made this flag after we watched “Flag Wars,” a film about middle class, white gay men gentrifying a black neighborhood. The rainbow flag became a symbol of gentrification, so we realized we need to make our own flag which symbolizes working class, queer liberation.”
