THE BISHOPSGATE INSTITUTE – The Bishopsgate Institute is near Liverpool Street Station London and was founded in 1895 to provide “a public library, a public hall and meeting rooms for people living and working in the City of London.” A thank you by the GLF to the Bishopsgate Institute for hosting us this May – publicising the Institute’s name and the immense help given by its staff – not only this May but every day of the year in non-lockdown times.
THE GAY LIBERATION FRONT (London) – Has 51 years’ experience of non-violent protest against exploitation and marginalisation of LGBT+ people. Lesbians from the Women’s Liberation Movement shared and led in policy-making from the beginning. It was started in a lecture-room of London School of Economics in October 1970 by two white male students returning from the Black Panthers’ “Revolutionary People’s Constitutional Convention” of September 1970 in Philadelphia. That was a year after the Stonewall Uprising in New York of summer 1969 when lesbian, trans, bi and gay men rebelled against police persecution in New York.
The idea behind – “ THEBISHOPSGATE DEBATES” – The name “Bishopsgate Debates” pays tribute to the “Putney Debates” held in Surrey by Parliament’s New Model Army in 1647 who, in opposition to Charles I’s army, remodelled the British isles on republican lines.
Their Debates turned out disastrously for Ireland. They won’t this time..
