LIGHTS! CAMERA! ARSON! Calling all flamboyant queens, movie stars, celebutants! Gay Shame and folks living in the Mission District have been in outrage about local sites targeted by landlord arson and gentrification, locations which neighbor a luxury condo named Vida and the New Mission Theatre. These developments draw in and house newly-transplanted suburban techies, home realtors and tourists. They also add to suspicious increases in violence against vulnerable long-time residents, murdering those living on the street or in encampments, destroying street culture, surveillance, heightened gentrification and displacement.

Lights! Camera! Arson! Gay Shame and folks living in the Mission District are outraged watching rent-controlled housing targeted by landlord arson as a tactic of gentrification, like the building at 22nd and Mission St. next to Vida, the luxury condo, and the New Mission Theatre.  These new condos house transplanted suburban-white-techies (& their gross families) while increasing housing speculation.  They also support violence against long-time residents of color, murdering those living on the street or in encampments and destroying street culture through heightened surveillance and displacement. GAY SHAME a virus in the system
