"Gay Shame started as an alternative to Gay Pride. Gay Pride had become a disgusting consumerist and assimilationist nightmare, and Gay Shame was devised to be a space for queers who didn't want to deal with that shit. Queer folks exist because of a legacy of direct action activism. However, the gay mainstream is actively working to 'clean up' all forms of queerness that do not fit into the white, upper class, married, heathery dream." -- Mary Sumptions of Gay Shame San Francisco. (Each member of Gay Shame identifies him or herself as "Mary.")
