Who We Are
We go by a lot of names– some people know us as the San Francisco chapter of Pride at Work. Some people know us as HAVOQ– usually translated as the Horizontal Alliance of Very (or Voraciously or Vaguely) Organized Queers. Whatever you call us, we’re a collective of queers fighting for economic and social justice.
We are the LGBTQ arm of the labor movement, actively campaigning to protect workers’ rights to organize and defending queer justice in the workplace. Our group also organizes to build tenant power in San Francisco, to ward off the gentrification of queer neighborhoods and stop the displacement of communities. We work to resist the ongoing attacks on immigrants, the homeless, and other frequently targeted members of our communities, in hopes that our city will one day be a safe place for all people. We stand with all workers, tenants, immigrants and queers in the spirit of the union movement’s historic motto: An Injury to One is An Injury to All.
Everyday we are building a strong queer voice for justice through grassroots organizing. Wherever we go we are a fabulous and energetic presence in the streets. Every voice makes us stronger- Join us!
