MY ZOMBIE BROTHERS AND SISTERS LEND ME YOUR EARS!!!
I have a nightmare that one day future generations of zombies will be able to go to school with the living, that the government will not interfere with the love between a zombie and the living. That families will not be ripped apart just because a family member has died. I have a vision of couples living and dying in perfect harmony, growing with legalized zombie adoptions and consolidating with respectful decomposition.
Far too long our groans and shambling have been ignored! Far too often we have been used for target practice and forced to ride underneath the bus. Far too many times have zombie rights been trampled to preserve the happiness of the living.
All because we love brains...
It’s true, we were once alive, but being re-animated does not mean we are not people too. But if you prick us do we not ooze?
Their pistols may aim for our heads, but their intolerance hits us right in the heart...
End the Hate and march for Zombie Rights!!
Both Seattle Pride and the our vampire relatives the Seattle Goths are sympathetic to our cause and have asked us to join the Seattle Pride Parade this year! The pride parade is about Unity, Honor Diversity, and Achieve Equal Human Rights throughout our Region and the World. Some of undead knew a horribly racist world. They lived in hate crimes. They knew segregation. They knew discrimination.NOW that we are on our way to becoming an open and free and loving society that EVEN THE DEAD want to find that perfect loving society that they were so deprived of in life. All the undead, the gay and straight together, return to greet their living brethren in hopes that the world will unite in peace. The living and dead TOGETHER can find a place of unity and trust. ZOMBIE PRIDE! ZOMBIES ARE PEOPLE TOO!Who:
Zombies willing to dress up and have a blast! Looking for peace signs like "Zombies are People too!" "DON'T HATE! DETERIORATE!" "ZOMBIE is the new Black" "I ♥ my gay undead son" "wish this march happened when I was alive and I would have Come OUT" "BRAINS!" "ALL WE WANT IS BRAINS!"Where:

Statement from Cate 'Heretic Saint' Leader of Seattle Gothic Pride about zombies in pride parade:'we are goths. we have a hearse in the parade. we have bats. we are like a little horror show. we have just as much right to be there as anybody and will not have our message and sexual diversity marginalized because somebody thinks we don't fit into their little box.'
