Free The Black Pride 4

0.00

This is a zine compiled by the Columbus branch of the International Socialist Organization in collaboration with Black Queer Intersectional Columbus. It chronicles the events of June 17, 2017, when a group of Black Lives Matter protesters silently and peacefully protested the Stonewall Columbus Pride Parade. They simply wished to make their presences known, feeling like Stonewall Columbus and its annual Pride festival have consistently silenced queer voices of color, as well as to observe seven minutes of silence for the recent acquittal of the police officer who killed Philando Castile in Minnesota. Columbus Police officers on bicycles immediately and violently intervened, deploying mace and tackling people to the ground. Eventually four black, queer protesters were arrested--who later became known as the Black Pride 4. This is their story.

The zine includes relevant articles written by people here in Columbus, as well as those in solidarity elsewhere. Photos, poetry, collages, and drawings by local artists and organizers inspired by these injustices are also included.
