MORE INFO - 

'Where do our rebellions lie now? How can we best tie them into our shared history?' Andrew Lumsden, GLF activist / Gay News founder (1971)

Why do we need to 'reclaim' Pride - a message from 'Gay Liberation Fronts' Andrew Lumsden. 

"Surviving Gay Liberation Front activists were sidelined by a London Pride Committee on our 40th anniversary in 2010. Mayor Johnson and his bodyguards – he never spoke to us - were put in front of us on the July march, though we invented such marches. And we were allowed 15 minutes to speak from the Trafalgar Square stage, cut at the last moment to 5 minutes.

We’d like things to go better for the 50th anniversary in 2020 even if we’re all in wheelchairs. We invented things before and can cheerfully do it again, with the help of friends.'
