10/16: Major Caliente Action

Queer Justice League, Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF), Gays and Lesbians of Bushwick Empowered (GLOBE), Transgender Health Initiative, and Make the Road New York announce an ACTION OUTSIDE CALIENTE CAB COMPANY in response to the restaurant's homophobia, transphobia and sexism during the June 24 Khadijah Farmer incident and its aftermath. The action will take place Tuesday, October 16, at 5:30 p.m. Please spread the word widely and circulate the online "flyer" about this action to your friends, contacts, and organizations. For background on the Caliente Cab Co. controversy, see this Gay City News article.

Hey all,

I met some of you at the NYC Pride Radical Queers Pink and Black Bloc. I'm from Sarah Lawrence SDS (Students from a Democratic Society) and Flux (a feminist organization) and we're gonna put this action info into an activist bulletin we're compiling for our campus. I'm also gonna put this information out on the SDS NYC listserv.

We should definately chat because SDS would definately be into the stuff you're working on.

Solidarity,
