Item #3380 Queer Anti-July 4th Celebration: Music, Theater and Poetry.

Queer Anti-July 4th Celebration: Music, Theater and Poetry.

New York City: Free Puerto Rico Committee, North Americans in Solidarity with Puerto Rican Independence, [1990]. 11” x 8½”. Flyer printed recto in English and verso in Spanish. Near fine.

This is a bilingual flyer for an anti-July 4th celebration sponsored by the Free Puerto Rico Committee in Solidarity with Puerto Rican Independence, a nationwide group focused on liberating the island from United States rule. The event was “a celebration of militant lesbian, gay, and Puerto Rican resistance to colonialism, racism, sexism, and heterosexism, and every form of 'American patriotism'.”

The event was held at the Lesbian and Gay Community Services Center in New York, with entertainment provided by activists and artists showcasing music, theater, and poetry. Headliners included Ferd Eggan, the long-time AIDS activist and executive director of Being Alive in Los Angeles, as well as Ubaka Hill, a musician, poet, teacher, and inspirational speaker. The Juanita Ramos on the flyer may be Juanita Díaz-Cotto, the co-founder of the Latina Lesbian History Project. She used the pseudonym “Juanita Ramos” in 1987 when she published “Companeras: Latina Lesbians (An Anthology),” and the flyer's description of “Black Puerto Rican Lesbian Feminist,” certainly fits.
