Lesbian Gay Bi Trans Queer (LGBTQQI) activism in the UK

After the adventure that was the organising of my first protest, and thinking back on poorly attended protests I have been to in the past, it occured to me that the LGBT community can be fairly disorganised when it comes to coordinating protests. In an attempt to partially remedy this, and in view of the importance that the site has had in the success of "my" protest, I have created a Facebook group that people (that includes straight people) who want to want to hear about opportunities to get involved in a protest in support of LGBT issues can join.

The group is called Lesbian Gay Bi Trans Queer (LGBTQQI) activism in the UK and can be found here.

I am also mindful of the fact that not everybody is or wants to be on Facebook. They can therefore join our Yahoo! Group here.

Feel free to join either or both and invite your friends.

Thank you.


  1. If I don't want to be on facebook OR Yahoo, will I be able to keep up to date of protests on here too? I have you in my feed and would prefer not to check two different sources...

  2. Hi Stephanie,

    You might hear of certain things on here but most of it is actually happening on Facebook.

    There are over 200 people on the group already (and only a few on Yahoo!) and they are posting details of events and actions already.

    I agree that this is not ideal but I am not sure how else to do this. At the end of the day it's probably not possible to find solution that will suit everybody. Do you have any thoughts yourself?
