MANCHESTER - LESBIAN AVENGERS
Twenty years ago, a group of six women kick-started a movement to increase lesbian visibility and challenge bigotry. Using high profile direct actions and eye-catching imagery, the Lesbian
Avengers recruited thousands of women worldwide to take part in highly visible street actions, culminating in 20,000 women marching on Washingtonfor the 2004 Dyke March.
Two decades on, a lot has changed but lesbian and bisexual women still face homophobia, biphobia and sexism. This fun session will celebrate the women who fearlessly stood up for rights and visibility and encourage you to speak out about issues that matter today.
The LGF is inviting all lesbian and bisexual women to join them.
