Revisiting Community Tensions

Last year I blogged about community tensions in the run up to Pride. Most Pride events have arguments and tensions but the one surrounding Manchester cut to the core of modern activism - who is pride for. Some voluntary groups complained that the price of stalls meant they simply couldn't afford to participate in pride and due to the costs of the armbands, nor could many of the people they want to reach out to. It was an argument that I thought had value then and David Henry (who you see in the original Channel M video) has now commented that the same issues persist this year. Queer Youth Network TV have produced a video that highlights some of the issues. The sound is a bit dodgy in places but the message is an important one.
