Pride Means to Struggle: How do we Respond to the Orlando Massacre?
At almost a year since the victory for same-sex marriage, a vicious bigoted massacre has been carried out against the LGBTQ community in Orlando. The important legal and democratic gains of the community have been met with a reactionary wave of discrimination and violence, including the reactionary HB2 in North Carolina -- a bill that targes trans people, legalizes discrimination, and prevents increases to the minimum wage, affecting the LGBTQ community and all workers in North Carolina.
How can we advance the struggle? Join the PSL as we discuss the legacy of struggle in the LGBTQ community, our activity in Pride Month and the work that's still left ahead to achieve LBGTQ liberation.
