Fighting corporate takeover at London Pride

There was more criticism than usual of the organisers in the run-up to this year's London pride event, dominated as it is by corporate marketing and with its apolitical stance. It reinforced the call for LGBT+ people to reclaim it as a campaigning vehicle.

Socialist Party members campaigned energetically. Our posters said: "Build a fighting socialist movement for LGBT+ rights" and got much attention. We gave out 500 "pride is political" leaflets and raised 45 for the fighting fund.
