LGBT Day School: fight for liberation

Issue No. 2202

Socialist Workers Party LGBT members met last Saturday to discuss the fight for liberation and the political situation.

Workshops included the roots of gay oppression, the socialist tradition and LGBT liberation, and the modern movement.

People discussed the anger at having a Tory-led government of bigots.

Over 50,000 people have joined a Facebook group calling for “equalities minister” Theresa May to go. She voted against almost every LGBT equality vote.

Activists discussed relating to upcoming events, arguing for the link to be made between the fight for LGBT liberation, socialism and wider resistance.

Activists said local SWP groups should intervene in Pride, LGBT history month and build the anti-homophobic bullying campaign in schools.
