The New “Lavender Scare”: Attack on the Working Class?

Source: In These Times
by Maximillian Alvarez

“Things are getting very dark in this country, and it’s likely going to get worse before it gets better. At every turn  …  working people are being encouraged to turn on each other and to see certain groups of their fellow workers as the enemy. From the demonization and increasingly violent attacks against LGBTQIA+ people, to an extremist-dominated Supreme Court preparing to strip away queer people’s right to marry, to legislatures around the country working to eliminate trans people’s right to exist, we must respond to these assaults on our neighbors and coworkers with the same spirit of solidarity that gives life to labor’s eternal message: an injury to one is an injury to all.” (08/01/22)
