Toolkit

How to do outreach queer and trans anti-militarism in your communities:

  • Identify queer/trans events or spaces where you can do outreach (LGBT film festivals, picnics, sports events, pride events, youth events, beaches, bars, comedy events)
  • Form a team of people who want to do outreach with you
  • Have a meeting where you talk about why you want to do this together, logistics, maybe role-play conversations you might have while doing outreach
  • Make a sign up sheet for outreach at upcoming events, aiming to have people do outreach at least in groups of two
  • Print out stickers, posters, t-shirts, or whatever you want to use (below, or design your own!)
  • Go out and meet people and give away cute stuff!!

T-Shirt Design

You can print your own t-shirts to wear while doing outreach. Here is one T-shirt design, with text for front and back. We silk screened ours by hands with friends, but you can also get them printed from local shops or online.

 

 

Wheatpasting Designs

Wheatpasting posters all over town is a great way to spread the message. Here are black and white versions of Chris Vargas’ designs so that you can print them cheaply on a copy machine and wheatpaste them. Here are some wheatpasting instructions.
