Solidarity for #PrideMonth! The history of LGBTQ+ liberation movements under capitalist imperialism is inextricably linked to the history of the socialist movement and class struggle.

Today, on the precipice of the largest crisis in imperialism's history, the victories won by these struggles are at risk of being destroyed and the conditions facing working class LGBTQ+ people are still utterly intolerable.
