The Occupy Wall Street movement in the fall of 2011 quickly spread to other cities, including San Francisco. The Bay Area Reporter's November 17 issue talked with LGBTQ people about the reason many queers joined the movement that focused on economic inequality and corporate greed.

Tommi Avicolli Mecca, a longtime queer activist, told the paper that LGBTQs are in the right position to question the status quo.
