The QueerBomb Manifesto

QueerBomb is a family of LGBTQIA individuals gathering to support our unique and collective pride. Our purpose is to provide a space to celebrate each and every member of our community and encourage all to embrace the manifold ways we contribute to building a beautiful and diverse society. We look to the traditions of our queer radical past, embodied in the struggles of our ongoing fight for equal justice and the right to express ourselves in whatever way we see fit.

Each June, the month of Stonewall, we stand forth to embrace our sexuality, bodies, personalities, art, music, literature and politics. We are reclaiming the radical, carnal, and transgressive lineage of our ever-changing community to capture a meaning of pride that refuses to put rules on what you can and can’t be proud of.

QueerBomb does not apologize, QueerBomb does not make excuses. QueerBomb stands proud, and so should you.


QueerBomb es una familia de individuales LGBTQIA que se reúnen para apoyar nuestro orgullo único y colectivo. Nuestro propósito es proporcionar un espacio para celebrar cada miembro de nuestra comunidad y animar a todos a abrazar las formas múltiples de las cuales contribuimos a construir una sociedad bella y diversa. Reclamamos el linaje radical, carnal y transgresivo de nuestra comunidad siempre cambiante en nuestra lucha constante por la justicia y la igualdad de derecho a expresarnos de la manera que lo veamos conveniente.

Cada mes de junio, el mes de Stonewall, nos mantenemos unidos a abrazar nuestra sexualidad, cuerpos, personalidades, arte, música, literatura y política, mientras que recuperamos el orgullo de patrocinio corporativo. Nos esforzamos por un orgullo que se niega a poner las reglas que uno puede o no puede estar orgulloso, que dice que todas las expresiones, desde el espíritu a la carne, son dignas. QueerBomb no se disculpa.

QueerBomb no hace excusas. QueerBomb es gratuita para todos. QueerBomb está orgulloso, y usted también debería serlo.

The Queerest Night in Texas Since 2009

Every year, on the first Saturday in June, QueerBomb explodes in downtown Austin, Texas.

Every QueerBomb has 4 parts:

  1. RESOURCE FAIR to show off some of the most important organizations serving our community;
  2. RALLY that centers marginalized queer voices and inspires the community;
  3. PROCESSION down 6th Street, inserting our queer bodies and voices into the symbolic heart of the patriarchy; and,
  4. CELEBRATION where we dance and play together as a diverse LGBTQIA+ community!
