STEEL STRINGS & BREAK BEATS TOUR 2009
BROADCAST LIVE - EVAN GREER & FRIENDS


The committed musicians of STEEL STRINGS & BREAK BEATS resist genre and fight for inspiring music by fusing the social justice roots of Hip Hop, the DIY ethics of punk rock, and the soapbox troubadour tradition of folk music. The tour's four diverse members are activists and organizers who use their music and poetry as powerful tools that support grassroots struggles for liberation. In addition to the bands' topical, uplifting, and crowd-rocking performances, the tour offers interactive workshops for students and community members who want to get involved with movements for revolutionary change.

WORKSHOPS INCLUDE: History of Hip Hop and Social Justice, Connecting the Dots of Climate Justice, Community Organizing 101, and more! Workshop descriptions are available in our online presskit.

Check out our music:

Anarcho-queer community

queerunity
The Fox News show Red Eye hosted by Greg Gutfeld continues to air transphobic remarks at the expense of various transgender people in the public spotlight, now focusing his attention on a boxer transitioning from male to female. We first called Mr Gutfeld out for his outrageous transphobic and horrific remarks about the "Pregnant Man" FTM, Thomas Beatie. He also spewed out offensive remarks against openly gay congressman Barney Frank.

queerunity
Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern who once suggested "gays are worse than terrorism" is back to demonizing gays again. In an unusually public ceremony, Rep. Kern signed a “Proclamation for Morality,” which blames the U.S.’s current economic crisis on, among other acts of “debauchery,” same-sex marriage

The Advocate Refers to Trans Woman as a Gay Man [Jun. 16th, 2009|04:33 pm]
Anarcho-queer community

queerunity
The Advocate a premiere LGBT news magazine has come under pressure from trans activists and allies after it referred to a couple who were legally married in New York as a "same-sex" couple. In the article N.Y. Unwittingly Marries "Same-Sex" Couple, the couple Hakim Nelson and Jason Stenson were given a marriage license because the clerk was unaware of the birth gender of Nelson who now goes by Kimah.

Neither Jason nor Kimah identify as gay, and this is a poor example of reporting. Please read this and contact The Advocate and let them know it's time to report on trans issues accurately.
