    Hate to say it kids, but I was deep in Queer Nation (and ACT-UP) in San Francisco back in the day and this is EXACTLY the type of shock theater we used. In fact where do you think “We’re here, we’re queer, get over it” came from? We invaded shopping malls as herds of drag queens. We had kiss-ins and die-ins and the fact is we are here and people have no choice but to get used to it. And until they do we’re staying in their face. We don’t have to prove that we’re more pious and conservative than they are just to be accepted. Furthermore I resent people who weren’t on the forefront of radical queer politics back then telling me what we stood for and what our tactics were. This is the closest thing to a QN action I’ve seen since then.
