Fightback unity cheered at Pride

Buffalo, N.Y.

On June 4 in Buffalo, N.Y., youth from Workers World Party, Queers for Racial Justice and other groups marched at Pride in a first-time-together, fightback contingent. They carried banners and signs confronting anti-LGBTQ oppression, racism, sexism, war and Trump’s entire anti-worker program. Placards raised support for immigrants, the Black Lives Matter movement and defense of trans women of color — raising the legacy of Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. The contingent’s presence in an otherwise heavily corporate celebration brought wild cheers all along the parade route.
