It's THAT placard...

For all the people who have been in touch to ask if we've got a copy of Peter Tatchell's anti-Griffin placard from Pride last week, yes, we have, and here it is.

Thats great - nice one Peter! But I think the next main task for LGBTQ communities who oppose racism and fascism is to unmask and combat the EDL. These EDL scumbags sometimes try to appropriate our LBGTQ struggle for liberation, in order to hijack it and make it into a tool for oppressing another minority group, by feeding islamophobia.
The so called EDL Gay Division' is a fake. Like many other 'divisions' these are facebook 'astroturfing' operations, set up by one or two people and then given size by being 'liked' by a few hundred hardcore EDLers. (Astroturf = the term given to attempts to create the appearance of grassroots support - but the grass is artificial).
The EDL gay division have openly praised EDL funder Alan Lake - the Christian fundamentalist who combines virulent homophobia with virulent islamophobia.
But their homophobia does not stop the EDL fascists from trying to use our LGBTQ struggle. Recently EDL members were involved in attempting to set up a fake 'gay pride' event in East London, solely for the purpose of whipping up anti-Muslim bigotry. This is despite the fact that leading Muslim figures in East London have been unequivocal in their condemnation of homophobia and its use by homophobic extremists within the Muslim population.
Our struggle has historically been informed by internationalist and anti-imperialist politics. Hence our first name in the 1970s was 'Gay Liberation Front' in an echo of the name of the Vietnamese NLF that was leading the struggle to liberate Vietnam from violent domination by the USA at the time.
Lets build a fight back! Queers Resist EDL Fascists!

It appears that Giffin is up to no good in his internal leadership contest.
