QueerBomb is Austin's response to the tendency toward commercialization and assimilation in corporate-backed Pride celebrations. It's a march and a rally that begs its audience to join the fun, and true to its intention of celebrating the "radical, carnal, and transgressive lineage" of queerness, it feels more like a flash mob or a party than a traditional parade. QueerBomb seeks to celebrate diversity, lingering in the latter four letters in LGBTQIA (trans, queer, intersex, and allies.) It's the opportunity to put on your sparkliest unitard and take to the streets.
