Last year was the first time that the leader of the Labour Party had publicly joined in with LGBT Labour’s participation at Pride & for which Jeremy Corbyn was thanked (NOT!) by being heckled by Blairites to resign as party leader & unsurprising to me that it later transpired the particular Blairite leading the heckling worked for Portland Communications who have had links with Blairites within Labour who’ve tried to oust Jeremy as leader.
But it’s not that LGBT Labour is a bastion of Blairites which is the primary reason as to why I won’t march with LGBT Labour at the Pride celebrations this weekend in London, it’s because LGBT Labour members don’t practice what LGBT Labour preaches, oh sure LGBT Labour might preach equality for all but their members aren’t so great when it comes practicing equality particularly as I’ve found out for myself if you’re disabled or trans.
Usually after any AGM of LGBT Labour there are drinks at a local pub, the last time I attended I remember asking if we could go to a pub which had decent disability access as the year before I nearly fell down the stairs & broke my neck at the pub we went to, but the majority of the gay men in attendance weren’t having it & I really did feel like it was a fuck you to me for being a disabled person & anybody else who was in attendance who was also a person with disabilities which affected their mobility etc, but hey why should I be surprised as these were likely Blairite gay men who would be bitchy & vain & have strong narcissistic tendencies & it ain’t just disabled peeps they don’t give a shit about but also trans women.
There’s a problem in the wider LGBTQ community with trans peeps being marginalised & maligned which is propelled by gay men hating upon us trans women because they reckon all trans women are really just gay men who’ve taken things too far or by radical feminist lesbians who don’t reckon we are truly women, so I guess there shouldn’t be any surprise this is reflected in the LGBT Labour ranks, to start with if you’re a trans woman who’s manage to get yourself elected to the national executive of LGBT Labour then you’ll find from the off there’ll be gay men plotting to unseat you from whatever position you’ve been elected to, trans women it seems should only be there to make up the numbers, be nodding dogs, but not to actually speak up for the interests of trans peeps.
We now get to LGBT Labour at Pride, I’ve attended a couple of times with LGBT Labour but never again will I march with LGBT Labour at any Pride celebration, the few trans peeps who do attend Pride with LGBT Labour aren’t made to feel welcome at all, you’re made to feel LGBT Labour is a select club of gays & lesbians & you’re intruding because your trans, no I’d prefer to march amongst friends thus last year I marched with a group of trans comrades who welcomed my contribution & I’ll be doing the same again this year.
LGBT Labour’s campaigning might have achieved much in the past, but recently they’ve seriously been lacking to the point where you kind of think LGBT Labour wouldn’t be able to organise an orgy in a brothel, I mean the fucking Tories have stolen a march in being more inclusive towards Gender Queer peeps whereas there’s still no Q in LGBT Labour!
