LGBTQI Rights In Trump’s America – Lessons From The Past

What lessons can we learn from LGBT activism during the Reagan years which can help as we  face up to life under Trump? Michelangelo Signorile has been talking to Huffpost Queer Voices.  His thoughts are well worth reading and he has some key messages:-

  • Don’t wait too long to organise and act
  • Be inclusive of minorities; essentially we’re facing  a white nationalist hate movement in the US
  • Be creative about protest; learn from ACT UP
  • Make protest inter-generational

Do you agree? Your thoughts are welcome…
