The Radical Queers

We are a network of queer, lesbian, transgender, bisexual, gay, and ally (qltbga) individuals and organizations advocating for and incorporating voices and visibility of qltbga issues/concerns into the multi-issue social justice presence at political events, demonstrations, and rallies during the Democratic National Convention. With an anti-oppression analysis, we hope to use the DNC as an opportunity to build energy, community and visibility for the radical queer community in Boston and around the country, as well as support struggles by other Boston communities that will be highlighted during the DNC.
