[1/3] Seattle Area PSA: Trans Pride Safety Bulletin (cw: white nationalists) 

There's a Trump rally scheduled at the same time as Seattle Trans Pride, likely intending to disrupt the event.
Here's the info I've found:

• They're likely meeting at 4th and Columbia downtown & will march from there

• The hosting group has connections with known white nationalist movements

• The Gender Justice League is aware of this and is requesting donations for additional private security for Seattle Trans Pride

[2/3] Seattle Area PSA: Trans Pride Safety Bulletin (cw: white nationalists) 

WHAT CAN WE DO?

• DO attend the event with friends and stick together!

• DO NOT engage the fascists (while they're in a group).

• DO NOT call the police to ask for their help. The SPD is NOT an ally of the transgender community and is not welcome at Trans Pride. Instead, the Gender Justice League has asked for donations to cover the costs of additional private security.

@mawr Very minor correction/nitpick: James Allsup wasn't the president of the UW College Republicans, but the WSU College Republicans.

He now holds a position in the local Republican Party (although the party disavows him and has stripped him of power, he still holds the title).

Source: I lived in Pullman during the height of his shenanigans and still live just across the state line in Moscow.

@mawr Of course! :heart_trans:

I wish I didn't know enough about the guy to know this, though...

re: [1/3] Seattle Area PSA: Trans Pride Safety Bulletin (cw: white nationalists) 

@Aradia @mawr oh they do? i see they have sundaes but shakes too?

this is oddly practical. they're a factory for this stuff and it doesn't do to throw a $10 salt and straw one at fascists

@Thaminga @Aradia @mawr oh my god this will be the one time that a milkshake drives all the boys away from the yard

re: [1/3] Seattle Area PSA: Trans Pride Safety Bulletin (cw: white nationalists) 

@Aradia @mawr I was about to say!

@mawr @Aradia 10,000 stickers need to be made and slapped up all over the city!

@Aradia
@mawr
You are suggesting this just to drink rather than using it as a weapon to ruin the clothes of haters?

re: [1/3] Seattle Area PSA: Trans Pride Safety Bulletin (cw: white nationalists) 

@Aradia @mawr
Actually, maybe you are suggesting it as a weapon, didn't notice the OP about a trump rally X'D

re: [1/3] Seattle Area PSA: Trans Pride Safety Bulletin (cw: white nationalists) 

@Aradia @mawr
Just make sure you aim well, don't waste good milkshake! 🤣

re: [1/3] Seattle Area PSA: Trans Pride Safety Bulletin (cw: white nationalists) 

@Tazer_Silverscar @Aradia

Oh but of course! :D

re: [1/3] Seattle Area PSA: Trans Pride Safety Bulletin (cw: white nationalists) 

@mawr oh god, after Charlotte in 2017 i never feel good when two opposing protest groups meet at the same time
