Lizzo Is Right: We Can’t Abandon Queer People

At a recent show in Knoxville, Tennessee, pop artist Lizzo brought drag queens onstage to perform with her — a clear stand against the recent drag ban passed in the state. This is an inspiring move from Lizzo, but as workers we must take action into our own hands, and take it further.

Biden’s New Title IX Proposal Is a Move to Whip Votes, Not Protect Trans Kids

President Biden has put forward a new proposal to adjust Title IX regulations, supposedly to prevent discrimination against transgender athletes in public schools and universities.

To Protect Trans Youth, We Must Organize Ourselves!

On Trans Day of Visibility, a group of trans and queer youth led nearly a thousand people through the streets of New York City with combative slogans on their lips. In the face of reactionary attacks on trans existence across the United States, these students and organizers sent a clear message of strength and solidarity to their trans and queer siblings whose existence is being suppressed, criminalized, and erased. Left Voice was proud to march with them and to take up their message of resistance as an integral part of the struggle for a better world. Inspired by their example, we call upon every sector of working and oppressed people to join this struggle as one innately tied to their own.

President AMLO’s Government Is Not Feminist

On March 8, Mexican president AMLO spoke cynically of his commitment to feminism. But the fight against gendered violence, militarization, and labor precarity will be fought by the masses, not the so-called “progressive” government in Mexico.
