A year of Trump has ushered in a torrent of anti LGBT+ legislation in attempts to restore “family values”, including a despicable trans military ban, and militant binary bathroom laws. On top of the discrimination, harassment, and threat of violence trans and gender nonconforming folx face in their daily lives, lack of health care, job insecurity, insufficient or unlivable housing, and incarceration threaten their survival immensely. The conservative, capitalist narrative wants to shove queer people back in the closet.
We must fight for an alternative to the repressive structures that disable us from realizing sexual freedom. We must illuminate the working class character of LGBT history, and tie the struggles of the past to the challenges we face today.
Join the ISO to discuss how we can win sexual liberation for all.
