Today at my CLP I lost the LGBT Officer post because a str8 white man stood against me.His statement did not have one sentence about LGBT campaiging.Those sharing homophobic content today clapped. There was mass walkout in disgust. I might actually be done. Over to you @UKLabour
How can someone who espoused homophobic views just today got to vote on who represents the LGBT community in our CLP. Tell me why those who have been homophobic & intimidated us- complaints of which were sent a year ago are still in the party & can pass judgement on our lives
A straight white man was voted by a straight majority GC to be a LGBT Officer. Tell me how the Labour Party is still the party for equality and social justice? Tell me why I shouldn’t tear up my card right now. Tell me why this CLP is still not under special measures @UKLabour
As we left we were booed and asked to f*** off by several people? Who were they?

1. Someone who compares Gay people to paedophiles!
Then there was another who tweets about traditional marriage and retweets Mufti Menk (a homophobic hate preacher) (independent.co.uk/student/news/u…)
And ofcourse there was the from today who shared videos about disrupting inclusive SRE in the borough & claimed his phone was stolen & other people shared it. @UKLabour this is just the tip of the iceberg. I don’t want to name & shame them until you deal with the complaints
Finally the person who stood against me who doesn’t for once say how he self identifies in his statement or in his speech. This is what we are dealing with. How is he going to ensure a strong voice for LGBT people when every LGBT person left the room after his election in disgust
Last post for tonight. This was my 1 min speech. I am now on an overnight train to Scotland for a conference.
Come what may LGBT rights will need a voice in this borough & I alongside my fab 🏳️‍🌈 councillors & friends will continue that. No threats can stop us. Starts next week✊🏾
