About FUQ

We are Fed Up Queers in Arkansas who have had enough.

We are fed up with police brutality of Queer and Transfolk and with the encouraged assimilation by the power hungry gay media and organizations. We are fed up with being nice and quiet and we no longer will play by your games. We are fed up with the raging Queer and Trans homelessness and the rapid  gentrification of Arkansas and its impact on low/no income Arkansans in the areas under attack.

We are a group of Sex-Positive Queer, Trans and Gender Non-Confirming folks in Arkansas. We are a beautiful mess and will call you out on your shit.

Here are points of unity, borrowed from the fabulous Bash Back! groups popping up all over the country.

1. Fight for liberation. Nothing more, nothing less. State recognition in the form of oppressive institutions such as marriage and militarism are not steps toward liberation but rather towards heteronormative assimilation.

2.A rejection of Capitalism, Imperialism, and all forms of State power.

3. Actively oppose oppression both in and out of the “movement.” All oppressive behavior is not to be tolerated.

4. Respect a diversity of tactics in the struggle for liberation. Do not solely condemn an action on the grounds that the State deems it to be illegal.

If you are interested in any projects we are working on, or have ideas for future projects you would like to work on with FUQ, please e-mail us.
