This year will also be World Pride, the overall theme is Dream Gather Amplify, and we're contemplating the challenge of resisting normativity as our movements grow. While there are many minorities inhabiting both the queer and nonbelief umbrellas, and probably always will be, we're moving into a world where both heterosexuality and religion - at least any specific religion - are losing their claim on majority status. Lots of people are joining us, but 'the fight' is by no means won. How do we proceed in this new situation? For a start, beware of falling into normativity. Remember the past and keep asking questions. What else??
We're building the big old union banners that we hoped to after the centenary of the Great Strike of 1917. There's plenty of room to say all of this... but how? We're going to need more ideas and slogan suggestions, some construction, plenty of design and lots of painting... not to mention participants on the day! If you're interested in any or all, get in touch!
