Sorry for the nostalgia.  LOL! Queer Nation Portland was instrumental in me not dying during the anti-gay initiatives of the late 80s, early 90s in Oregon when bigots threatened me and my boyfriend with arson, beatings and other horrors. Bible-thumping terrorists made it extremely dangerous to be visible and stand up for our rights. On the ballot: measures to approve discrimination based on a perception of one’s sexual orientation in housing,  employment and services. Thank Queer Nation that the bigots failed to convince people that their loving god could force everyone to hate us. Pictured stickers from Houston are examples of the QN-style of in-your-face messages printed on neon stickers.
