This, from Julie Bindel in the Daily Telegraph, is beyond offensive. I grew up under Section 28. I had no LGBTQ education whatsoever, in a school riddled with homophobia. The only time a teacher discussed LGBTQ issues was to call anal sex 'unnatural'. Goodness fucking me.

A message to anti-trans activists: You are going to lose. Full video:

I wonder why the Telegraph, with its long and gruesome history of opposing LGBTQ and women's rights, is so happy to publish articles by people who use terms like 'Trans Taliban' and 'Queer ISIS'.

It's the biggest Tory scandal of the moment - and @RichardJMurphy  will tell us all about it. Plus - the brilliant @KatyMontgomerie  tells us about the latest phase of the anti-trans moral panic. Join us live at 5pm 👇

The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, about Gender Recognition Reform. Everyone needs to watch this explainer by @KatyMontgomerie .

Why isn't this scandal leading the news bulletins? 200 children are missing - and most of you have no idea what I'm talking about. The brilliant @LaurenHStarkey  tells me everything you need to know 👇

None of the people screaming at this column by @rhiannonlucyc  bothered to read it. She's suggesting that rather than storing up books you're never going to read again, wouldn't it be nice to share them with other people. For that she got a load of abuse

Fascinating new data from the #Census2021  on sexual orientation by age. This doesn't mean being lesbian, gay or bisexual has become more common: it just means younger generations feel more able to come out and live their true lives.

The Spanish police are now beating up Catalan firefighters. This is an absolute shocker. #CatalanReferendum 

Donald Trump is planning to sneak into Britain to avoid protests. RT if you're willing to commit to protesting this bigot at short notice ✊

If they're doing this to journalists while cameras are trained on them, what are they doing to black protesters when no one is looking?

I've never watched this before, and frankly found it hard not to be genuinely impressed and moved by Prince Harry here.

This is absolutely incredible. A journalist confronts @Boris Johnson with a picture of a 4 year old with suspected pneumonia forced to lie on coats in a Leeds hospital. Johnson just grabs his phone and puts it in his pocket. Everyone needs to see this.

The whole world is watching you, @marianorajoy . Your brutal war on democracy is an international disgrace. #CatalanReferendum 

The Spanish government is at war with democracy in Catalonia.

History rarely repeats itself, but it often rhymes. The parallels between the backlash against trans rights and gay rights are astonishing. This is Anita Bryant, chart topping singer, orange juice promoter - and the face of the anti-gay rights movement in the US in the 1970s.

50 LGBT brothers and sisters murdered by a homophobic terrorist. The love LGBT people have for each other will defeat the hate we suffer.
