Castro's Boycott Jamaica Launch:
New Pics From Clinton Fein
My friend Clinton Fein has posted his photos from yesterday's launch of the Boycott Jamaica campaign, and they're so fabulous I'm sharing the best of the lot here. Many thanks to everyone who helped make the rum dump fun and successful, and to all of those supporting the boycott. Be sure to visit boycottjamaica.org for the latest and most comprehensive info on this important global mobilization against Jamaica's human rights abuses against its gay citizens.
With the historic Castro Theatre dominating in the background, a handful of advocates pour Myers's rum and Red Stripe beer onto Castro Street.
Supervisor Bevan Dufty, wearing his Boycott Jamaica tee shirt subverting the Red Stripe logo, has a hearty laugh before he speaks about his endorsement of the boycott.
Longtime leather community organizer Gary Virginia looking colorful holding a sign he made to send a message to Jamaica's leaders.
Veteran queer community organizer Todd Swindell tapes up boycott posters on a pole in Harvey Milk Plaza, before the rum dump begins. His tee shirt reads, "The Religious Right is Dead Wrong."
