Join our next meeting to connect with fellow activists, make new friends and help us plot this very special day. We will continue to gather ideas to pay tribute to all who fought for liberation, and continue the fight for absolute freedom for all. We will also discuss about our participation at the 50th anniversary ‘Pride’ march organised by ‘Pride in London’ Corporation on July 2nd. Please bring trusted friends, friends from allied movements – UK Black Pride, London Trans Pride etc – to our next GLF ‘Think In’ gathering.
The first meeting of the London Gay Liberation Front (GLF) took place at LSE in October 1970, inspired by the Stonewall Riots in New York in the previous year. Here’s what original and current GLF activist Andrew Lumsden says – “Stonewall Uprising and the foundation of the Gay Liberation Front in New York inspired and brought hope to LGBTQI+ of every country in the world. Gay Liberation will always be a socialist movement by virtue of its demand for social change.”
GLF stands for liberation: the choice is always there – liberation or slavery.
