Lesbian Pride at London Pride, July 7, 2018

Lesbians mounted a parade-stopping protest at London Pride today, July 7, 2018. They objected to the erasure of lesbians caused by so-called allies among gay, bisexual, and transgender organizations and individuals who forcibly rename lesbians as generic “queer people” and who demand that heterosexual men who sexually fetishize lesbianism must be accepted by same-sex attracted women as if they were actual lesbians.

The lesbians first gathered in front of the march, displaying their message. They carried signs and banners that read “Lesbian=Female Homosexual”, and “Lesbian Not Queer”, “Transactivism Erases Lesbians” and “Get the ‘L’ Out!”, among others. Then they lay down in the street, halting the parade and drawing attention. After a few minutes, they stood, and led the Pride March, remaining at the helm for the duration.

Lesbian Protesters halted the 2018 London Pride parade. Then they led it.

Their statement:

Why “Get The L Out” ?

Who We Are

Get the L Out is a group of lesbian and feminist individuals and organisations, opposing the increasingly anti-lesbian and misogynistic LGBT movement and the erasure of lesbians

Why We Protest

We believe that lesbian rights are under attack by the trans movement and we encourage lesbians everywhere to leave the LGBT and form their own independent movement, as well as to be vocal and take action against the proposed changes to the GRA.

Get the L Out believes trans politics (with uncritical support from the LGBT movement) does the following:

Promotes the social transition of lesbians, encouraging them to present as straight men thus favouring the pretence of heterosexuality over lesbianism – this is nothing more than a form of conversion therapy.
Promotes the medical transition of lesbians and pushes harmful drugs (untested hormone blockers, Lupron etc.) as well as unnecessary medical practices on perfectly healthy bodies – these are a form of misogynist medical abuse against lesbians.

Promotes the rights of heterosexual males who “identify” as women and lesbians (despite most of them still retaining their male genitals) over the rights of lesbians to choose their sexual partners. This new ‘queer’ LGBT politics thus coerces lesbians to accept the penis as a female organ and promotes heterosexual intercourse between male and female as a form of lesbian sex. This is simply a new facet to rape culture and compulsory heterosexuality.

What we Believe

“The trans movement with the complicity of ‘queer’ LGBT politics is coercing lesbians to have sex with men. We firmly condemn this vicious form of lesbophobia disguised as progress”.

“We stand for the rights of lesbians to choose their sexual partners on the basis of their sex not their “gender identity” and condemn any pressure on lesbians to accept so called “trans women” as potential sex partners and the penis as a female organ as coercive and a manifestation of rape culture”

“We oppose the transition of young lesbians on the basis that their appearances or behaviour does not conform to socially accepted images of women. Having short hair and disliking pink is not a sign of having a male brain and does not mean one requires transition. The trans movement is a conservative movement which reinforces sexist sex stereotypes.”

“We oppose proposed changes to the GRA and view self-identification as a threat to women’s and girls rights.

“We demand stronger sex-based protections for women and girls and that women maintain the right to sex-segregated spaces at the exclusion of male regardless of their “identity”.”

This action is supported by a number of individual Lesbians and Lesbian supporters, as well as Critical Sisters, Mayday4Women, Object ! and The Lesbian Rights Alliance

Video of the protest here [* THIS IS THE BEST VIDEO EVER! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! The whole thing is testerically narrated by various sick-ass dude-bros- LOLOLOLOLOLOL] :

The lesbian protest was greeted with cheers from the crowd. Up to a million onlookers flanked the streets to view the parade. Some of the men who demand the right to be recognized as “male lesbians” responded poorly- one of the crossdressers claimed he was warned by police to stop abusing the women.

Man fights for his right to be a lesbian.

Another heterosexual man who demands to be recognized as a female homosexual by lesbians reportedly hurled a water bottle at the women, which apparently hit a police officer.

Men representing the UK ‘Pink News’ click-bait website, (which lesbians colloquially refer to as “Penis News” or “Prick News” due to their anti-lesbian and anti-woman editorial slant), ranted on the site’s Pride March video feed about how the parade “Isn’t going the way it’s supposed to be going!”, complaining that the event has “been significantly disrupted!”. On the website’s livefeed of the event, the men from Pink News call for the lesbian Pride marchers to be dragged off by police and arrested. “They’re free to distribute their leaflets? I don’t think anyone from Pride has reviewed them!” one of the men from Penis News exclaimed with distress about the lesbian marchers.

The lesbians were supported by the crowd, and went on to lead the parade at the helm for the entire route. They were widely applauded by onlookers. They handed out informative literature to onlookers as they marched, some of which is reproduced here:

Win Win Coffeeshop in Philadelphia denied public accommodations to a popular gay male Drag performer scheduled to host a fundraiser in their establishment because a straight male employee was “uncomfortable” with his gender-bending appearance. Spoiler alert: The heterosexual male identifies as transgender.

 

Win Win Coffeeshop bans gay men in drag

From Philly Voice:

“Management at Win Win Coffee Bar, 931 Spring Garden St., says it had no idea Aunt Mary Pat would be performing at their establishment. The shop asked Mary Pat to leave after a transgender employee was offended, a move that’s caused social media backlash against the coffee shop and a subsequent flood of negative reviews.

The employee says the character is transphobic, but the performer believes he is being unfairly judged.

Aunt Mary Pat is performed by Troy Hendrickson. The 30-year-old Delaware (not Delaware County) resident has gained plenty of attention for his impression of a suburban Philly mom with a thick accent and biting attitude, producing plenty of viral videos, such as Mary Pat’s angry reaction to missing the Eagles Super Bowl parade to work a shift at Acme.

Hendrickson has brought his character on the road, doing shows across the Philly region. On Wednesday evening, he was scheduled to host karaoke at Win Win for Soroptimist International of Rittenhouse Square, an organization that works on improving the lives of women and girls.

Hendrickson said he got to the event and was greeted by an organizer from Soroptimist International. About five to 10 minutes later, a manager spoke to the event organizer, and eventually pulled Hendrickson aside, too.

“What he said was I had made one of their employees uncomfortable by my appearance,” Hendrickson said he was told. “The employee was transgender and my appearance was offensive.”

Hendrickson said he offered to speak to the employee and explain the character was not mocking transgender people; he told PhillyVoice that Mary Pat is a heterosexual, cisgender woman.

The manager went and talked to the employee, came back and said it would be best if Hendrickson left.

The employee, Lily Kulp, told PhillyVoice that no matter how Hendrickson characterizes his performance, it is a mockery of transgender women. She said transgender women spend a lot of money on procedures during their transitions, and to have that publicly made light of is “not OK.”

Kulp clarified that she does’t take issue with drag performances in general, but believes Hendrickson’s performance in particular is “gross and transphobic.”

She  didn’t want to speak to Hendrickson, she said, because his interaction with the manager indicated to Kulp that Hendrickson wasn’t going to take her concerns seriously. Kulp said she had already worked six hours and often gets misgendered at work.

“I guess like my issue is my feelings were belittled by this person,” Kulp said. “I didn’t want to engage with this person, who was already rejecting what [the manager] was saying.”


Hendrickson briefly posted about the incident on Facebook and the gay community and allies responded by flooding the Win Win Coffeeshop Facebook and Yelp pages with negative reviews.

From PhillyMag:

“The employee, Lily Kulp, says she was “infuriated” once she became aware that DiSabatino — a queer cis-gender male whose real name is Troy David Hendrickson — was set to perform as part of an event benefitting Soroptimist International at the Spring Garden coffee shop’s monthly Queer + Feminist Karaoke showcase.

After she spoke of her discomfort to her manager, Kulp says, Henderickson was told that he could not perform, at which point a verbal confrontation ensued. “[Henderickson] was extremely rude when told by my manager that I was offended by his persona. He made it a point to say he wasn’t transphobic and kept saying that the situation was ridiculous.”

Lily Kulp, real name Brandon Kulp, also goes by the name(s) Lilith Kulp, Princess Trinity, Shimantha Jones, and RealGirl420. He imagines himself to be a male lesbian, specifically “an indigenous trans butch”, according to his e-begging account.
