65] – Workers World Party invites you to a Pride Webinar on Thurs. June 25 at 8 PM ET. The LGBTQ2S+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Two Spirit+) movement arose from two bicoastal rebellions -- the 1966 Compton Cafeteria Riots in San Francisco, and the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion in New York City. Both rebellions after decades of police attacks, raids, harassment and violence were led by transgender people (mostly transwomen) and queer street youth who fought back. Since 1969, June has been celebrated as “Pride” month all over the country. This June, LGBTQ2S+ organizations and activists have dedicated pride to the Black Lives Matter Movement. Speakers Include Sofia Sepulveda - Sofia is a first-generation Mexican American Trans Latina Healthcare organizer for the Texas Organizing Project. She is the co-lead-organizer for the Medicare for All March in San Antonio and the Million Women’s March in Washington; and Mumia Abu-Jamal - journalist and radio personality who has been in prison for 39 years.
