Protest inequality: Tonight at McGinley's

Protesting Mayor Sullivan's veto of AO 64

It’s a Friday night: time for a pub crawl!

So crawl your way over to McGinley’s Pub at 645 G Street: not to drink, but to protest Mayor Dan Sullivan’s veto this past Monday of the Anchorage equal rights ordinance. Sullivan is part-owner of McGinley’s: his patrons should know that Sullivan supports discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

McGinley’s Pub is in downtown Anchorage at the corner of G Street and 7th Avenue.  We’ll be protesting there beginning 6:30 PM.

According to protest organizers:

Folks who do drag and leather are encouraged to come dressed up. Couples are encouraged to have a kiss in. There might be a continuation later…, when the folks who are in the drag show at Myrna’s are able to come.

Grrlzlist elaborates:

Invite our allies & ask them to wear gender-neutral clothing or drag. What are they afraid of, a hunky guy in a Utilikilt & boots? It takes a het man who is really secure in his sexuality to wear a skirt!

Photos on this blog later tonight. Meanwhile, do as the man’s sign says: Boycott McGinley’s.
