Auckland Pride 2018
Two young feminist heroes, Charlie Montague and Renée Gerlich, took the opportunity to challenge lesbian erasure and child abuse at the Auckland Pride Parade in February 2018. The picture tweeted by Charlie, right, shows the banner they carried at the Pride saying, ‘Stop giving kids sex hormones. Protect Lesbian Youth’.
Renee’s blog carries the press release they sent out, which also links to a video of an interview Charlie gave en route.
“Montague says that ‘Gender is a system of ‘pink and blue’ sex-based stereotyping. Without these gender stereotypes there are no ‘trans’ children. We want to break down stereotypes so that youth can be whoever they want to be – without being medicalised for it.”
The bad but totally unsurprising news is that they of course got loads of hate from the trans cult. But the better news is that they got masses of support from all over the world. They were so brave to make a stand – a great example to us all.
London Pride 2018
I was bursting with London pride when I saw my lesbian sisters stealing the limelight at this year’s pride. Here’s footage from Pink News, with a predictably diabolical narrative calling it an “anti-trans” protest rather than what it was – a protest against lesbian erasure and part of a campaign to Get the L out. Read about it here: Why “Get The L Out”? and see the video the protesting women took themselves here Lesbians Protest London Pride – #GetTheLOut.
