EuroVision of a Free Palestine

— The Loco Klub
Variety show and karaoke fundraiser
time:20:00
price: Prices Below Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Bristol’s first LGSMigrants activist-led radical queer dance party is here ️‍

Join us for a night of music, laughter and spectacle as we celebrate queer culture, say no to pinkwashing and raise money in solidarity with migrants facing oppression and displacement.

LGSM Bristol is joining queer and trans liberation organisations from around the world taking a stand for human rights and boycotting the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Israel.

Rather than sitting at home and being sad for missing out a night of entertainment, come along and take part in a party of our own. We've got a fantastic line up and from midnight, we’ll open up the floor for you to go crazy on the karaoke mic with your favourite songs. We can’t wait to see you there.

✊Why?

We are condemning Israel’s use of Eurovision, which has a strong following in LGBT+ communities, to distract from its war crimes against Palestinians. We won’t stand for this pinkwashing agenda, and the use of gay rights to distract from Israel’s occupation, settler colonialism and apartheid.

You can read the full statement here: https://bdsmovement.net/news/no-eurovision-pinkwashing-more-60-lgbtq-groups-call-boycott-song-contest-israel

If you have questions about the broader tactics of boycott, please read the FAQs from the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement: https://bdsmovement.net/faqs

By attending our events, you agree to our Safer Spaces Agreement. The basic tenet is respect. LGSMigrants is committed to making our events as safe as possible, whilst recognising that it’s not possible to create spaces that are completely safe for everyone.
- respect each other (our backgrounds, identities, ideas and bodies) and respect the spaces we create together and are part of.
- Respect and look after the building as a physical space and a resource for all.
- Any behaviour that demeans, marginalises or dominates others, or perpetuates hierarchies, is not welcome.
- Identify your own privileges – the things that sometimes give you an easier ride than others – and try to be aware of them.
- Be aware of the range of people’s identities (gender, race, class) and avoid making generalisations or assumptions about people.
- Be aware that people might not want to have their picture taken, so please ask before taking pictures.
- Be aware that anyone in the space could be a survivor of a particular form of oppression, for example, violence or racism.
If someone is feeling uncomfortable, do not hesitate to raise this.
- It is everyone’s responsibility to challenge prejudice and oppression, and if we ignore it we are complicit in it.
