From the growth of the far right to rising transphobia, LGBT+ rights are being undermined across the world.
In Britain, too, many hard-won legal rights no longer feel secure. To fight back we need to reclaim the LGBT+ movement’s radical history of resistance—and arm ourselves with a theoreticalunderstanding about why oppression exists.
LGBT+ people have serious questions about how to win the liberation we crave from the alienation and oppression we face. This pamphlet, now substantially revised and updated in a second edition, seeks to offer answers to these crucial questions.
Authors Laura Miles, Isabel Ringrose and Tomáš Tengely-Evans offer a Marxist explanation of the roots of homophobia and transphobia, argue we need to build united opposition to the attacks on LGBT+ people, and ask how we can fight for genuine liberation.
