In 2008 a creative activist collective called the People's Revolutionary IDeas Eatery (we know you can feel isolated being a radical queer of colour in our crazy times of war, imperialism and racist backlash) planned a series of interventions and actions such as an anti-police-brutality performance and the BAME stage of Pride and a bombardment of the conference the day before as 'drag queens' raising angry intelligent questions which seemed to shock the crowd (our intelligence has brown femme perceived transwomen?)Download

Star and PRIDE zines tell us about the historical political background of trans activist movements (US and UK) and to the importance and necessity of trans healthcare but also how it intersects with citizenship, housing, employment, police and state violence and carceral systems. PRIDE as we know it now, originated as a riot, the Stonewall Riot (28 June 1969) and there's a reason why it came to be, an outcry at the systems of oppression in place that enacted violence towards transgender and gender non conforming people. PR I DE zine informs us of a moment in time in 2008, further down the line in the UK context where many of these issues continued to be prevalent. Trans struggle and revolt is wrapped up in our well being.
