Happy Pride Month everyone! Pride Month celebrates the diversity and history of the LGBTIQ+ community, and marks the Stonewall Riots, a watershed moment in the fight for LGBTIQ+ liberation around the world. Queer rights have been long and hard fought, and reflecting on how far we've come as well as what still needs to be done is so important.
Trans rights are human rights - this is non-negotiable. The federal election result has shown that progressive politics are where it’s at, and Australia has no appetite for the politics of hate of people like Katherine Deves. But it remains incredibly important that as the political landscape shifts we stand firm with the transgender community. Watch my speech emphasising the serious importance of trans liberation - it is clear we still have a long way to go in the fight for genuine trans liberation.
