Prisons Are Not Sexy - An Open Letter to the SF Armory calling for a change of the Pride At The Armory prison theme party

Have you heard about the offensive party planned for the Armory June 28th, "Prison of Love"?, Club Universe, Masterbeat, FRESH SF & XOXO Entertainment are hosting a Pride prison themed play party, advertising with phrases like "Solitary confinement, showers, jailbreak, love and lust, freedom and confinement.  All on display in the penal colony.

At a time when public discussion and media finally has an eye toward the daily systemic violence against trans and queer people, this party theme and promotions are especially harmful and trivializing.

Please join Miss Major, TGI Justice Project, Janet Mock, El/La Para TransLatinas, Community United Against Violence, Trans March, and many other organizations and individuals in signing our open letter to Pride At The Armory promoters letting them know why prisons are not sexy and demanding that they change their theme.
