The 60th birthday of Workers World newspaper’s managing editor, Leslie Feinberg, was celebrated at an event on Sept. 5 in Syracuse, N.Y., that also served to launch Feinberg’s latest book, “Rainbow Solidarity in Defense of Cuba” (available at leftbooks.com). The internationally-known transgender activist and author’s latest work challenges imperialist propaganda against socialist Cuba by showing the trajectory of progress in LGBT liberation since the island nation’s 1959 revolution.

Buffalo, N.Y., Workers World
members pay tribute.

The well-attended event held at the ArtRage Gallery, dubbed a celebration of “a life of love and struggle,” honored the many years of Feinberg’s unwavering participation in the fight for LGBT liberation, in solidarity with Palestine and people’s struggles around the world, and in defense of socialism.
