Every year on the first Saturday in June, downtown Austin lights up with QUEERBOMB - a free, radical celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex community, deep in the heart of Texas.
During National Pride Month, QUEERBOMB embodies the courageousness of Stonewall and challenges corporate, heteronormative Gay Pride festivals. Join us on Saturday evening, June 2, 2018, at Fair Market, 1100 E. 5th St., Austin, TX.
QUEERBOMB is more important this year than ever before.
We must stand together to RESIST threats to LGBTQI+ equality, gender minorities, people of color, indigenous peoples, immigrants, women's health, the environment, the poor, and religious minorities, both here in America and around the world.
We must also stand together in our fierce joy and power.
QUEERBOMB is your chance to recharge! Reconnect with your fellow queers!
QUEERBOMB CAN'T HAPPEN WITHOUT YOUR HELP
Each year, QUEERBOMB grows in size, strength, and passion. However, as the crowds have grown, so have the costs. Each year we face increased fees from vendors and the city, and require greater resources to meet the needs of our ever-evolving communities.
With your help, we can meet the substantial financial challenges of maintaining QUEERBOMB as a free, all-inclusive, all-ages, corporate-free, and sponsorship-free event. In order to put on this year's QUEERBOMB, we need you!
Whether you donate $500, $250, $100, $50, $25, $10, or $5, please donate what you can!
