A Few Thoughts on BLM and Pride

Random thought from last night: Usually, a few days after Pride, we stop talking about it; it tucks away with LGBQT* issues broadly into its customary corner of the public sphere and the slate of public discussion moves on. This year, almost a week later, my news feed is absolutely full of discussion of LGBQT* issues, of discussion of racialized queers, of discussion of the relationship of marginalized communities with the police. This is exciting, this is the political, and this is what happens when some brave people literally force us to pause and consider, and to step out of the comfort zone of celebratory neoliberalism.

Bravo to Black Lives Matter Toronto for being fierce and visionary in their affinity politics and fighting for solidarity, progress, and inclusion.
