guerrilla queer bar pub crawl

7 08 2009

Cincinnati’s Guerrilla Queer Bar announced their latest “target” late last night via their Facebook group:

For serious. It’s time MainStrasse got a healthy dose of queer!

We’ll be convening at the COCK AND BULL (601 Main Street– Covington, KY) around 9pm. Get there early to find your queer buddies (safety in numbers!), eat some food, grab a table outside, and take advantage of the Guerrilla Queer Bar drink specials. At 10:30 we’ll be following the “Queer Super Highway” (you’ll see what we mean, just think– “follow the rainbow brick road!”) over to Cosmo’s (604 Main Street– Covington, KY). We’ll be converging on the Patio and there will be an awesome DJ spinning, NO COVER, and GQB very own $4 – Flaming Blue Guerrilla drink special (it’s really an electric lemonade…shhh….don’t tell) . Cosmo’s also has $5.50 Bombs and $3.00 Domestic Bottles specials!

It’s going to be an extreme amount of queer fun, so start polishing your dancing shoes.

I don’t know where any of these places are, except for a vague concept of “Mainstrasse,” but I’m down! Who’s up for going … and, perhaps more importantly, who’s up for picking my lame ass up? 🙂 I promise to drink a lot, stir up trouble, and be completely inappropriate. Who could turn down that offer?

cincinnati in the great nationwide kiss-in

5 08 2009

Impact Cincinnati is spearheading the local piece of the Great Nationwide Kiss-in, a national movement that arose out of three separate incidences (San Antonio, Salt Lake City, and El Paso) where same-sex couples were harassed or arrested for public displays of affection. The national Facebook site, which is being sponsored by, lists 50 cities and over 3,000 individuals participating.

With the assistance of Cincinnati’s Guerrilla Queer Bar, Impact Cincinnati will be hosting our local event on Fountain Square on Saturday, August 15th, from 2:00pm-3:00pm. They are assuring all interested participants that, even if you don’t bring someone to kiss, there will be plenty of single folks to share in the activism.

Check out DYM-SUM for the amazing promotional videos: the first released on 7/27/09 and the second released on 8/3/09.
