Fabulous speech in @UKParliament by @HannahB4LiviMP - Thank you for your kind words about me and @DIVAmagazine too, that really meant a lot. Seeing such positive words for #LGBTQI women in Parliament is something I never thought I would see! Happy #Pride everyone! πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ³οΈβ€βš§οΈ

Angela Crawley MP @AngelaCrawley30 reflects on all those who have marched and campaigned for gay rights before, and calls on the Government to ensure no LGBTQ+ person is returned to a country where they are at risk of violence.

Angela Eagle @angelaeagle - male homosexuality was only decriminalised by the pioneering Wilson Labour Government in 1967. LGBT+ people have come a long way - gay men were regularly jailed, and targeted, entrapped, blackmailed by the police.

#50YearsOfPride #pride @LGBTLabour

Angela Eagle @angelaeagle recalls how the weaponisation of homophobia in the 1980s worked. Campaigning in 1987 doors were shut in her face because "Labour only stands for the Blacks and the Queers"

#50YearsOfPride #pride @LGBTLabour

Angela Eagle @angelaeagle lists the LGBT+ rights achievements of the Labour Government: end the ban of LGBT+ people in military, equalised age of consent, repealed Section 28, unmarried couples inc same-sex adoption rights, civil partnerships

#50YearsOfPride #pride @LGBTLabour

Angela Eagle @angelaeagle says it seems the Govt has decided to use LGBT+ people, esp. trans people, as a wedge issue ahead of a General Election, and hopes they will think about the damage that does and step back. "We will not let it work"

Dan Carden @DanCardenMP announces a group of LGBTQ+ veterans will be joining and marching with uniformed armed forces personnel for the first time. They will wear their medals with pride, having faced cruelty when they served.

#50YearsOfPride #pride @LGBTLabour @fightingwpride

Dan Carden MP asks the Chief of Defence Staff to ensure LGBTQ+ veterans are properly consulted, pensions are restored, and there is financial compensation. "Until that happens this will be a matter of national disgrace."

Mary Foy @marykfoy quotes Tony Benn from the 1988 Section 28 debate "The day will come when people will look back and be glad that there were honourable members on both sides who stood against what is an incitement to harass decent people."

#50YearsofPride #pride @LGBTLabour

Hannah Bardell: "As we stand here today our trans and non-binary siblings are being subjected to a grotesque attack on their rights just to exist: to access healthcare, to participate in sport and wider society, to be fairly represented in an increasingly hostile media." 1/2

"I stand with my trans and non-binary siblings, and will fight for them as they have fought for my rights against a tide of misinformation as we saw against lesbians and gay men, and against a hostile media and a hostile Government."

#50YearsOfPride #Pride @HannahB4LiviMP

Hannah Bardell @HannahB4LiviMP questions corporations "rainbow washing" and profiting from our oppression while not contributing meaningful to our community. Acknowledges some do donate their funds, but questions even the best "rainbow tat".

#50YearsOfPride #pride @OutForIndy

Hannah Bardell @HannahB4LiviMP says there is a sinister problem of disinformation being funded by the religious right, partly playing into ending abortion rights in the US, and MPs must work against this disinformation to protect trans people

#50YearsOfPride #Pride @OutForIndy

Ready for the #50YearsOfPride debate in @HouseofCommons being led by the brilliant @AngelaCrawley30. Standing up for the whole LGBTQ+ community in particular our trans & non binary siblings. #PrideMonth πŸ³οΈβ€βš§οΈπŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ

Sir Ian has spoken about the power of coming out: β€˜It changes your life utterly. I discovered myself. And everything was better. My relationships with my family, with friends, with strangers, and my work got better as I wasn’t hiding anymore.’ https://eif.buzz/39XB0HP

Favourite photos of the wonderful Jacquie Lawrence - who received the prestigious @irisprize last night. Jacquie is unashamedly herself and has championed the rights of Lesbians and the wider LGBTQ+ community throughout her incredible media career.

An icon and role model πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ³οΈβ€βš§οΈβ€οΈ

Democracy is being eroded by this Tory government whose PM is happy to break the law & remove us from the European Convention Human Rights.

Independence for Scotland will bring greater levels of democracy & engagement, in Scotland and across the UK.

I've signed the #WASPI pledge pressing the UK government to deliver fast & fair compensation for the 1950s-born women robbed of their state pensions.

@theSNP stands with all WASPI women in their fight for justice.

🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿This issue of #indyref2 is not going away. We are not going away.

πŸ—³We would all rather Westminster acted like democrats and granted a Section 30 order.

πŸ§‘β€βš–οΈIf not, we will go to the Supreme Court &, if need be, fight an election on the issue of #ScottishIndependence.

The end of #RoeVwade will embolden anti-choice groups in the UK. @HannahB4LiviMP called for a mirroring of @scotgov commitments to introducing buffer zones - so that no one faces harassment when accessing abortion care in the UK #backoff @backoffscotland 3/6

A family season ticket for the 2022/23 season is priced at Β£675 working out at just over Β£35 per game.

That means a saving of almost Β£35 per game and a total, season long saving of Β£655!

Come and join us on the journey! πŸ’›



Devastating news about Zara Aleena. Thinking of her loved ones...another senseless, tragic death https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/jun/29/man-charged-with-of-zara-aleena-in-london-street-jordan-mcsweeney-?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other

Something has shifted. I don’t think doctors are going to tolerate this any longer. They’re sending us anonymised testimonial to leak to the press. Things are unsafe for patients and NHS staff. The government are failing the NHS. We’re going to raise the alarm..🚨

The striking down of Roe vs Wade has global implications for access to safe abortion & healthcare.

It cannot be sensible or sane that womens reproductive rights are more heavily governed than guns.

We need leadership, like that shown by our First Minister and @backoffscotland

Hi, my name is Anum Qaisar.

In 2014, I was planning to vote no. I was an active member of the Labour Party.

On 18th September 2014, I voted yes.

Independence isn’t about @theSNP. It’s not about @NicolaSturgeon.

It’s about Scotland.

Get involved:


FM @NicolaSturgeon plan for #indyref2 in 2023:

β–ͺ️publishing bill today for vote on 19 Oct
β–ͺ️question as 2014: β€˜should Scotland be an independent country?’
β–ͺ️seeking clarity on lawfulness in advance of introduction to Holyrood, with Lord Advocate referring to @UKSupremeCourt

19th October 2023!

Let’s go! #Indyref2

The Conservatives have just six MPs in Scotland - barely 10 per cent of Scottish representation - and yet
they have ripped us out of the EU against our will

They have created the worst cost of living crisis in the G7;

And saddled us with the second lowest growth in the G20.

Do you condone this @GBNEWS, seems one of your presenters thinks it's funny to use such a symbol of hate in relation to the LGBTQ community.

The Nazis murdered people based on religion, sexual orientation, race and disabilities. This is so incredibly harmful.

Call it out.

What a day!
Very grateful to @NicolaSturgeon and @MareeToddMSP for committing to work collaboratively on my Members Bill. A huge day for all the campaigners including @backoffscotland and @BPAS1968.
I'll be on @BBCScotNine shortly to discuss my proposal.

Hearing from my Turkish friend that police have moved in to attack Istanbul Pride. LGBTQ participants and allies are being arrested. Authorities had once again banned the event.

Coming a day after the Oslo attack, Pride has never been more important.
