THE QUEERBOMB IS READY TO BLOW!

by Angeliska on May 31, 2013

It’s Queerbomb time in Austin again, sweethearts! We’re getting ready to flood the streets with beautiful, proud happy queers and queens letting their freaks flags fly gaily in the summer wind, and if you’re in Texas, I hope you’ll come be a part of the magic this year.

What is Queerbomb?

Queerbomb is a Political Rally and Procession. Queerbomb is free to the public. Queerbomb is 100% free from corporate sponsorship. Queerbomb is an all ages event. Queerbomb is all inclusive.

Each June, the month of Stonewall, we stand together to embrace our sexuality, bodies, personalities, art, music, literature and politics, while recapturing pride from corporate sponsorship. We strive for a pride that refuses to put rules on what you can and can’t be proud of, that says every expression, from the spirit to the flesh, is worthy.

To give you an idea of what Queerbomb is like (if you don’t already know!) here are my photos from last year’s event:
