Remembering the Pink Triangle: A call for rainbow atheists to resist the far right!
October 30, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Having lost the vote in the marriage equality postal survey, the religious right is now focusing its homophobia and transphobia on policing the gender binary and peddling conversion therapy, while also foreshadowing possible new forms of discrimination under the guise of “religious freedoms.” Right wing nasties are organising and increasingly getting a hearing, reminding us that the fight for LGBTIQA+ liberation is far from over. What is behind this and how should we respond?
Speaker: Alison Thorne — queer liberationist, unionist and anti-fascist activist
Alison Thorne is a veteran LGBTIQ liberationist and the Melbourne organiser for the Freedom Socialist Party. She is currently working with PUSH! Organising and educating for a united front against fascism and has more than three decades of experience countering neo-Nazis, patriarchal foetus worshippers, homophobic bigots and other assorted rightwing types!
Location: Peter Knight Room, Thorne Harbour Health, Level 5, 615 St Kilda Road, Melbourne Vic 3004.
