FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) — Protests continued outside Fresno’s Tower Theatre for the 21st week. This time, demonstrators unveiled a list of demands for the city.
They’re protesting the sale of the theatre to Adventure Church.
On Sunday, demonstrators presented a petition that listed seven demands regarding enforcement of existing zoning at the Tower Theatre and community involvement in future planning decisions.
“It is the one queer-affirming gay community in the San Joaquin Valley, and putting a conservative, homophobic church in the middle of this accepting queer affirming, nightlife oriented neighborhood it’s just not a good fit,” said Jaguar Bennett.
More than 600 people have signed the petition so far.
