Queer Nation was founded in March 1990 in New York City, USA by activists from ACT-UP. The founders were four victims of anti-gay violence. Queer Nation's popular slogan "We're here. We're queer. Get used to it." was adopted and used by many in the LGBT community. Aside from its militant protest style, as opposed to the more reformist gay rights organizations such as the Human Rights Campaign or the Log Cabin Republicans, Queer Nation also argued for a socialist or communist interpretation of gay rights. The organization had some success in the early 1990s, mostly tied to working with AIDS organization ACT-UP. However, many gay people disdained its Marxist ideology and felt that its outrageous political demonostrations were not going to change public opinion on issues such as gays in the military and gay marriage. Even though never officially disbanded, most sources agree that Queer Nation no longer exists. However, a television program of the same name with a focus on gay current events and issues is regularly aired in New Zealand. ...more on Wikipedia about "Queer Nation"
