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.)

Amongst other activists, our friends at New Yorkers Against Gun Violence and Greater NYC for Change will be there as well.

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.
