Statement of solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter | June 6, 2020
The steering committee of the Lambda Classical Caucus stands in support of #BlackLivesMatter and all of those protesting against racism and police
violence perpetrated against Black communities across America. This includes the recent murders of Tony McDade, a Black trans man, last week; of George Floyd last week; of Breonna Taylor in March; and of Ahmaud Arbery in February.

We urge all of our members to stand with #BLM as well, in full recognition of the fact that there can be no LGBTQ rights without liberation for all of

June marks the fiftieth anniversary of Pride, a celebration that would be
impossible without the efforts of the queer and trans people of color,
including Black trans activist Marsha P. Johnson, who started the Stonewall
Riots and sparked the gay liberation movement. Now more than ever, we feel it is incumbent upon all of us to honor our shared history and stand in
solidarity with those calling for an end to police brutality, to racism, to
bigotry in all forms.

The LCC is dedicated to advocacy on behalf of LGBTQ scholars. In support of that mission and in recognition of our Black colleagues, we include links below to organizations working on behalf of the Black LGBTQ community. Speak out, sign petitions and contact your local representatives, and if you can, donate.

In solidarity,
