A packed room greeted leaders and participants alike last night at the meeting of the New York City Chapter of Gays Against Guns.
The meeting, held at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in Manhattan in collaboration with Queer Nation NY, was a forum for many topics. Among the most discussed, is the next planned action: a massive demonstration at Trump Tower this Monday night at 5PM to kick off the Republican National Convention. (5th Ave between 56th & 57th St.)
The energy in the room was palpable as creative, experienced, passionate, committed people in the community contributed thieir ideas for direct action.
It felt like a "direct" shot in the arm for both anti gun and LGBT activists at a perfect time.
