The Straight Liberation Movement
Since yesterday was April Fools Day, I first assumed this “Straight Liberation Movement” flier on the corner of 6th and Market was a joke, but now I’m not so sure. It seems to be the sole project of Nick Frabasilio, a San Franciscan has been politically active within Bay Area anarchist community as well as several East Bay activism projects. Nick created the Facebook group on March 1st and though it has 35 members, he seems to do most of the talking:
So this clearly isn’t an April Fools joke, but I’m still not convinced this isn’t some elaborate trolling. The terminology used (ie “Rapeversation”, “Gay imperialism”, and many uses of the word “occupy”) and the locations picked, seem so intentionally flamebaity that I have a hard time believing they are real.
