    The back cover (artwork by Colton Long) highlights an art event and march for equality on August 26 hosted by popular drag entertainer Juanita MORE! She told the San Francisco Bay Times, “Our city is expressing disbelief over the resurgence of hate in our society and in having a president who embodies that. This shock is understandable, but it must be met with action. San Francisco is coming together this weekend to resist hate and bigotry. Protests, non-profit events, dance parties and marches are being planned at Crissy Field, Harvey Milk Plaza, City Hall and other places throughout the day to express our collective disgust with white supremacy, fascism, and Nazism. I am in support of all of these events, and stand with the community and will not let the alt-right take us back in time.”

    “We are on the right side of history, and with one voice proudly proclaim that hate is not welcome here,” MORE! added. “We are united in our defense of the American values we cherish. Freedom, Liberty, Justice, and Equality for ALL. San Francisco is coming together to heal. Where there is darkness, we provide the light. Where there is hate, we provide the love. Where there is fear, we provide the hope. In my heart, the best place for me to bring my San Francisco family together is at Harvey Milk Plaza, where I will be joined by leaders from the Transgender Law Center, SF NAACP, SF LGBT Center, The National Center for Lesbian Rights, National Immigration Law Center, API Wellness Center, The Women’s March and more.”
