Queer Bloc at the Climate March

Join a collective of queer orgs and voices for fabulous artivism at the 2017 Climate March! It’ll be an ant colony (for collective strength), butterflies (for hope & beauty), and other fierce defenders of life on earth who rise up against evil Fascilla (boooooo!).

We’re stronger together, so come ready to march in love, joy, and power. We’re meeting at 11am in Washington D.C. at the corner of 4th St NW and Pennsylvania Avenue wth the “Makers of Sanctuary” contingent.

UPDATE:

DRAG SUGGESTIONS:

The People’s Climate March is known for its elaborate street art and the Queer Bloc will slay with our fierceness! Here’s how to participate in our visual spectacle:

* DRESS IN BLACK. This will give us visual unity & make our colorful accessories pop.

* Make your own Super Defender cape! Our Defenders will wear superhero capes; make your own with an ant, turtle, bee or butterfly decal on the back. Or: design your own unique symbol/identity!

PLAN TO JOIN A FACTION:

  • Ants: Workers Unite! Red and black capes. Throw on some dark oversized sunglasses; we will bring you extra arms. Bring a sign that emphasizes resilience and collective strength
  • Turtles: Snap Back! Forest green capes. If you’re coming with a team of 5 or more, please reach out to help carry our giant parachute snapping turtle
  • Butterflies: Purple capes, turquoise and pinks. Create your own butterfly look! Bring a sign that emphasizes love, hope, joy and beauty
  • Bees: Yellow and black capes. Bring a sign that emphasizes intersectionality, cross-pollination & solidarity across movements

Drop a note to Quito at quito.ziegler@peoplesclimatemarch.org if you’re planning to participate, or simply show up in drag (or not!).
