LGBTQ+ Animal Liberationists is an affinity group for LGBTQ-identified people who are engaged in grassroots animal activism. Nonhuman animals, like LGBTQ people, are often denied their bodily autonomy, subjected to violence by more powerful figures, prevented from forming fulfilling relationships with their loved ones or separated from family, and denied the ability to express themselves fully. LGBTQ Animal Liberationists aims to uplift the voices of activists who can uniquely speak to these links in an intentional, anti-oppressive manner. The group is a space for LGBTQ activists to discuss how we can be more effective when speaking as allies to nonhumans, and also to support one another in surviving/processing our experiences of heterosexism and cissexism in the human world.
Everyone is welcome to follow us on our public Facebook page. To join the private Facebook group for LGBTQ-identified activists only, contact Zach or Hana via email or Facebook. Adding a Facebook user to a private group requires adding them as a friend first, so make sure to let Zach or Hana know the reason you're adding them!
LGBTQ Animal Liberationists is a loose association including activists in the DxE network as well as the grassroots networks Collectively Free and FaunAccion.
