i’ve been asking myself, what good is a vehicle for your words if you can’t speak your mind? because one must not aim not to offend but hope to move and to mobilize. to incite honor and belief. and if you’d prefer me to be quiet then i suppose you wouldn’t be here now would you, you little weasel.
stay with me, eh? i’ve listed all the best ways to get involved this weekend, or i suppose, to have a healthy debate. or whatever. just get involved and believe in a better world every time you open your eyes in the morning. let’s discover just how strong we are by being together and moving together. your
election weekend empowerment weekend guide awaits, brooklyn.

for the glass ceiling that wasn’t broken, we find ourselves coming together, in a land that we realize now was more broken than we imagined. and although our hearts may still be aching, our spirits are lifting and our voices are rising to be heard. so let’s raise our glasses full of spirits and our voices full of hope to help mend this land, Thursday night at Brokenland. you know, that really great fucking bar on franklin st, in greenpoint. sure they’re usually known for their frozen drinks, but thursday’s event aims to warm our hearts and ignite a fire under our asses that we won’t let burn out, especially for the next four years. Trump, Keep Out is part of an ongoing series of benefitsfor planned parenthood, where they gracious owner and bartenders will sacrifice what is always quite a profitable night in this drunk town and give 100% of the proceeds to this vitally importantcause. and we all know that is reason enough for you to choose to go seek inebriation, retaliation, communication, and perhaps a new partner in fornication (come on, the best way to love your body is to let it get a little lovin‘) at such a locale on thursday night. they have provided some audacious incentives. prizes will be auctioned off from glasserie, shag sex shop, dandelion wine, beacons closet, and plenty of other neighborhood haunts where you choose that make your body feel wild and free and worthy. the charming elizabeth weitzen of shag playhouse and members of her oh-so-charming burlesque company will be making sure you don’t stop believing in the cause all night. there will be a dj dance party by LYLAS spinning all your favorite hip-hop, r&b, and 80s and 90s dance tunes to make sure those hips keep moving all night. oh and the drink specials won’t hurt. the event is free so come thirsty. 105 franklin st at broken land, where they can fix anything.
