Seattle Trans Pride 2019, Vigilante Hate Mob, Gender Justice League Staff Falsely Accused LGBTQ Photographer of Color of Being Racist Patriot Prayer Member
This Studio 2.8 Photography photograph was produced on the evening of June 28, 2019 at the Seattle Trans Pride event, held at Cal Anderson Park in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. In this Studio 2.8 photograph, a staff member associated with the group Gender Justice League which organized the 2019 Seattle Trans Pride event, falsely, maliciously, publicly, accused a Studio 2.8 photographer who is an LGBTQ woman of color, of being: a "fascist", a "racist", and specifically a member of a political group called "Patriot Prayer", while she participated in a misguided vigilante hate mob, when the truth is that neither Studio 2.8 photography, nor anyone associated with Studio 2.8 photography, is a member of any political group, regardless of political ideology.
The organizers of the Seattle Trans Pride 2019 march and rally, an organization called "Gender Justice League", whose executive director is Elayne Wylie, described their event on their website with the following statement:
"Trans Pride Seattle is open to everyone who believes that trans and gender diverse people deserve to live lives free from violence, discrimination, stigmatization, poverty, hatred, rejection, medical abuse and neglect, and mental pathologization."
and went on further to state on the Seattle Trans Pride website that the "mission" of the event, and among the "goals" of the event was to:
"increase the strength of the trans and gender diverse community and its allies, both within and beyond Seattle, through increased visibility, connection and love, decreased isolation, and the celebration of our amazing lives."
Instead, a vigilante hate mob attacked, menaced, assaulted, and battered, an LGBTQ woman of color professional photographer with hypocritically hateful, quite unlawful, false accusations that the LGBTQ woman of color Studio 2.8 photograph is a "racist", "fascist", "Nazi", "white supremacist", "Patriot Prayer" member, when in fact this photographer was one of the very people the event was supposedly meant to celebrate. The Seattle Trans Pride 2019 vigilante hate mob, dominated by European American, i.e. "white" males, intimidated and menaced a senior citizen LGBTQ woman of color professional photographer with hypocritical hate and bigotry that would and should shock the conscience of any reasonable American.
In this Studio 2.8 photograph, one of the participants in the vigilante hate mob, an apparent staff member, crowded directly into the face of the Studio 2.8 photographer who, through years of experience and professionalism, was able to produce this photograph anyway, while being menaced and taunted by the woman in this photograph, with her malicious and hateful accusations including accusations of being a "racist", a "fascist", and a member of a political group called "Patriot Prayer", wherein the false "Patriot Prayer" membership accusation formed the core of their basis for unlawfully discriminating against and ejecting an LGBTQ woman of color, at an event supposedly intended to celebrate "inclusion", "diversity" and "human rights". The organizers and staff of the Seattle Trans Pride 2019 clearly and irrefutably violated the civil and constitutional rights of the LGBTQ woman of color Studio 2.8 photographer who produced this photograph and accompanying video.
The brief video clip below, from a helmet mounted GoPro brand video camera, provides a glimpse into the surreal nature of this scene, as dozens of people crowded around a lone, senior citizen, LGBTQ woman of color professional photographer, taunted and menaced her with hate, and then proceeded to physically assault and batter the LGBTQ woman of color photographer, while making unwarranted demands that the LGBTQ woman of color photographer leave the event, even while masked Anarcho-Communist domestic terrorists lurked in the crowd taunting, and were allowed by the organizers to stay at the event.
It is difficult to imagine a situation more bizarre and ironic than an event such as Seattle Trans Pride 2019, which was advertised as one about "inclusion", "acceptance", and "love", but was instead one at which a group of completely uncivilized and unhinged maniacal people, who were presumably who profess to believe in such values as "inclusion", "acceptance", and "love", but who instead demonstrated and expressed misguided, extreme, hatred, violent, unfounded bigotry, and even felonious malicious harassment, toward an LGBTQ woman of color who had attended the Seattle Trans Pride 2019 event for the sole professional purpose of creating a positive and supportive photographic documentary about it.
