Welcome to the Lesbian Labour website!

We have been working hard for the past four years to get our message across to the Labour Party that we do not agree with the Party’s adherence to their Stonewall led policy on matters which affect Lesbian lives. Unfortunately, the Party is sticking to the Stonewall line, but we will continue to speak up for Lesbians, whatever happens on July the 4th. See About Us for our founding statement and aims or check out our recent blog post, which expands on our attempts to engage with Party leadership over recent years.

To our detractors

On April 20th 2021 Lesbian Labour launched our website. We received overwhelmingly positive support.

However, within our own party the reception was varied. Comments on one Facebook group were shockingly hostile. The post attracted almost 1,000 comments. Though many members spoke up and argued our case very well, the ratio of negative to positive comments was 2:1.

The responses of a group of individuals on Facebook is not necessarily indicative of attitudes across the party towards Lesbian autonomy. However, such hostility requires a very firm response. This is no way to create a welcoming space for Lesbians.

As Lesbians we have every right to self-organise and do not seek or need permission from hostile men, or women with a different point of view.

The comments levelled at us were offensive and inaccurate and made spurious unfounded allegations.

We have gone through the comments and distilled the various criticisms. Here are our answers.
