Maybe you've heard that Target corporate headquarters made a hefty donation to a political group that is endorsing a publicly anti-gay gubernatorial candidate. Obvs, this did not sit well with a lot of people. In protest, on Saturday, a big group of LGBT and LGBT-friendly types are all going to descend upon the West Hollywood Target to purchase something using a credit card?then immediately return it. The logic is that each transaction costs Target $3 - $5, and the group will sock it to 'em fiscally. Racked is supposed to be neutral, like Switzerland; we're not advocating participation (but at the same time, we're not NOT advocating participation), but it should be an interesting spectacle. The event goes from 11am to 2pm. [WeHo Daily, Racked Inbox]
