Easy Bi Activism: Lobbying Stonewall

BCN 86 cover

This originally appeared in BCN issue 86, Summer 2007

Following last issue’s report of yet another Stonewall publication which spoke entirely in terms of lesbians and gay men, at BiFest Manchester lobbying postcards were launched to press Stonewall on the issue.

The idea is simple enough: Stonewall tell people who want to help the campaign for gay rights that the way to lobby your MP or a chosen peer is by sending them a postcard about the issue in question.  So, turning their own principles on them, we lobby Stonewall to be more bi-inclusive in their work, recommendations and policy development, by sending them postcards saying that that’s what we would like.

There should be some postcards available at BiCon, or you can download the artwork from the resources section of the BCN website www.bicommunitynews.co.uk
