Join us for an evening mixing a party, politics & protest.
Tuesday 18 June
The Star and Garter, Bromley High St
7.30pm til late
Organised by Bromley Labour and Bromley Young Labour to mark Pride Month, there will be speakers on current issues for LGBT+ people and how Bromley Labour and Labour councils nearby are tackling them.
June is LGBT Pride Month, chosen to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall riots 50 years ago with events taking place around London & the U.K. Unlike many councils, Bromley does not mark Pride month in any way.
This is not much of a surprise, from a council which in the past banned gay couples from holding partnership ceremonies in council premises and still largely ignores the needs of LGBT people in providing local services.
With the recent protests over LGBT+ education, Brunei enacting stoning to death as a punishment for gay sex and the rise in homophobia, transphobia and hate crime in the U.K, Pride this year is especially important.
LGBT+ Labour party members and non-members, Allies, partners, friends & family are all welcome to join us.
