Get The L Out Lesbian Visibility at Manchester Pride 2019

On Saturday 24/08/2019, a group of women marched in front of Manchester Pride to stand for lesbian rights.

 

 

 

 

Like every time, this action would not have been possible without the sisterhood between women and the presence and determination of the women who marched but also the help and support of the team of invisible women working behind the scene.

 

We thank Paula, our amazing Welfare & Entertainment manager, Jackie and Sofia for their brilliant work as part of the Twitter team, and the countless Twitter activists who have shared our action. We also thank CM, Thomasin, Charlie, Katy, Rebekah, Helen, Lou, Janice, Suzan, Hannah and all the other activists who want to remain anonymous.

We are proud to have marched with you. And thank you ResistersUnited, Object!, and Make More Noise for the support and participation.

 

Amongst us were detransitioners, cotton ceiling rape survivor, trans widow, mother of transitioning children, lifelong lesbians, late bloomers, political lesbians, lesbian allies, prostitution survivor, domestic violence survivors, rape survivors, disabled women, women with PTSD, mixed-race women, white women, women from different countries and ethnic background, working-class and middle-class women, mothers, childfree women, with ages ranging from 19 to 60+

All of us came to this fight with our background and our own experiences. We respect and honour each woman’s trajectory to feminism and lesbianism. We need each of our perspectives because it makes us stronger.

As lesbians, we are united by our exclusive love and desire for women! And we are united with all women by our sisterhood!

Lesbian Visibility at Swansea Pride 2019

 

 

 

Two lesbians did an action for lesbian visibility at Swansea Pride (04/05/2019).

After marching at the front of the parade with banners saying « Lesbians don’t have penises » and « Transactivism erases lesbians », the two lesbians were pushed (from 3min05 on this video) and one of them was dragged out from the front to the sidewalk by four police officers.
