Approximately 100 LGBTA individuals marched through Lincoln Park and Lakeview Sat., April 5 in a demonstration that coincided with the the Bash Back! Radical Trans and Queer Convergence, according to a press release.
Bash Back! is a radical trans/queer/anarcha-feminist group that started in Chicago. The group's main goal is to fight for liberation while rejecting all forms of state power. It rejects all oppression and believes in a diversity of tactics to achieve equality.
The march targeted several sites that the group believes represents oppression, with the first such place being the Republican headquarters on Halsted and Diversey. Dozens of people danced on the sidewalk and street
screaming, ' We're here, we're queer, Republicans don't fuck with us.'
Other targets included the police station at Addison and Halsted as well as the Center on Halsted, 3656 N. Halsted. According to the release, the Center has 'denied access to young Trans and Queer people who do not belong to the rich, white, Gay community.'
