We are a group of people who have long been concerned with and worked for gender issues and sexual rights. “We” includes lesbians and gays, transgendered persons, multi-sexuals, sexual dissidents, gender/sexual rights activists, AIDS activists, human rights activists, students, lawyers, teachers. Among our core workforce are several experienced social movement activists whose trajectories began in liberal women’s groups and later moved on to more focused work with gender and sexual minority rights issues.
Our goal is to dismantle the discrimination and oppression of gender and sexual minorities in the social institutions of the family, the education system, politics, the economy and the law. We aim to collectively struggle against dominant culture’s ignorance of and refusal to see the gender and sexual rights of gender rebels and sexual dissidents.
