QOCOP - Queer Opening Ceremony Olympics Party
We gonna have a big o' gay time watching the opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics: Sochi.

Friday, February 7, 2014
7:30pm --- The ceremony broadcast starts at 8:14pm
At Branded Saloon - 603 Vanderbilt Ave (between Prospect Pl & St Marks Ave) Brooklyn, NY 11238
Nearest Transit Station: 7 Ave. (B, Q), Clinton - Washington Avs (A, C) or Bergen St (2,3)

The Russian government has some serious hatred for non-conformist, queers and apparently female punk rock bands ...deplorable human rights records....a ban on "Gay Propaganda" (if you want to know exactly what is banned... ...  people with rainbow flags in public keep getting arrested) International response has varied. Obama is sending over a delegation of LGBT athletes to represent the USA -- Billie Jean King, Brian Boitano and Caitlin Cahow!

It's important to get together and express our feelings about Russia's anti-gay stance and to support our athletes!!

Also there's a few groups organizing to uphold principle 6 because Russian Laws violate the Olympic Charter Athlete Ally and All Out

Branded Saloon has kindly agreed to let us use their back room with a huge screen and plenty of seating for our opening ceremonies viewing party. So, please feel free to bring friends along to view, boo (Putin) and cheer (U-S-A). Feels like the cold war all over again!

The event is free, but we encourage you to eat, drink and mingle. Pass this email on to any friends you would like to bring along.

Carrying a torch for you...
