The Pervers-Cite Blog is "under review" by blogger for possible "code of conduct violations", so i'm mirroring all the content here. (What this means is that people without a blogger account cannot access it.)
Pervers/Cite somewhere between an alternative and a protest to the official annual LBGTA Divers Cite celebrations in Montreal (more on this later). According to their mission statement,
The PERVERS/CITE organizing collective opposes racism, sexism, capitalism, transphobia, body fascism, colonialism, classism and all other forms of oppression and marginalization. We aim to oppose the queer community's total assimilation into mainstream kkkanadian culture, as well as to foreground both a local history of queer radicalism and social issues faced by queers today that are consistently glossed over by the gaystream media in favour of double-groom cakes and shopping holidays.
BTW, this weeks prize goes to whoever can spot the phantom conduct violation - not that it matters, by the time blogger clears the account this year's radical queer march will be over...
Still more to cum !
