STAND-UP FOR EQUAL RIGHTS!

Join the

"Money for Health Care,

NOT for Warfare"

contingent in this year's Gay Pride Parade!!

The contingent, initiated by the Gay Liberation Network, is a superb opportunity to outreach with an anti-war, pro-gay message to 400,000 Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Trans people and our allies. Participating organizations in the contingent include the newly-formed Chicago chapter of Code Pink, Peace Pledge, Not In My Name, and the Queer and Trans Caucus of the Chicagoland Anarchist Network.

To join us, meet at the corner of Halsted and Diversey at 11:30 am, Sunday, June 26. We strongly suggest that you do NOT drive to the parade (if you must drive, park your car near a Brown or Red line stop of the "el" and take the train to the "Diversey" stop of the Brown line el, then walk about four blocks east on Diversey to Halsted).

If you would like more info about joining the contingent, contact us at LGBTliberation@aol.com or phone 773.209.1187

Lesbian, Gay, Bi & Trans People demand money for

Healthcare NOT Warfare

While critical needs in the gay community and others go unmet...

  • The United States spends almost as much on its military as the rest of the world combined.
  • Besides building four U.S. permanent bases in Iraq, the U.S. has troops in over 150 countries around the world.
  • Apologists for the government say U.S. troops are used to promote freedom and democracy, but the U.S. has no problem propping up despotic regimes like Saudi Arabia, which beheads gays, backing military dictatorships like Pakistan, and attempting to overthrow elected governments, like that in Venezuela.
  • Money is wasted on ideologically driven programs such as "abstinence only" sex education and "faith-based" give-aways of tax money to anti-gay religious sects.

Please join the "Healthcare NOT Warfare" contingent in this year's Pride Parade

Initiated by the Gay Liberation Network (formerly Chicago Anti-Bashing Network).

We will meet at 11:30 AM, Sunday, June 26th at the corner of Diversey & Halsted. Just look for the "Healthcare NOT Warfare" banner. For more information, call 773-878-3697 or email LGBTliberation@aol.com
