Synopsis: @MarkDavyd from @MusicVenueTrust slags off Corbyn tweet re buses; says Corbyn tweets too much about buses; that nobody cares about buses; I say rubbish; he says ‘bad campaigining’; I say ‘MVT lack of support for Gay/LGBT venues IS bad campaigning’; he goes gaga - TheEnd
Background: for several years I’ve been speaking with Mark & his partner about MVT also supporting Gay/LGBT venues/performance spaces (MVT support music venues). We’ve had conversations by tweet, email, & phone; I also raised it to them as a question at MU London AGM - NOTHING
2019: as far as I know MVT has done absolutely zilch to help support Gay/LGBT venues; despite saying they would, and asking me to ‘keep reminding them’; each time we’ve spoken their responses show a definite lack of understanding of Gay/LGBT issues combined with lame excuses
2019 B: they’re still trotting out the same tired old excuses and appear to have done absolutely nothing about it in the meantime; Mark claims he doesn’t remember our conversations but in 2015 I instigated the Musicians Union inviting them as speakers to our 2016 LGBTHM event
2019 C: I’d been speaking with Mark & MVT for a couple of years or so before that; on all occasions specifically about Gay/LGBT venues; MVT had assured me that they’d also been supporting VARIOUS community spaces as they understood that Art/Drama/Performance was equally important
