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.

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.
