For those of you who may have missed the reports in the press, a man named Micah Painter was seriously assaulted during Pride. Three young men with broken bottles slashed a serious wound on his back, gashed his face and broke his nose.

Local activists Michael McAfoose and Donny Gallegos are organizing a show of support and protest march on Sunday, July 11th. (That's this coming Sunday.) Rally at Westlake at 4 and then march to SCCC starting at 5. At 6pm, the Seattle LGBT Community Center is hosting a benefit to raise funds to help Micah with his bills during his recovery period.

The organizers are seeking performers (musicians, spoken word, etc.) for this event; it's very short notice, of course, but if you are available and interested call the hotline at 206-333-7196 for more info; anyone seeking information on this event should call as well.

Go if you can!
