‘Relentlessly Gay, Deport Theresa May’: Pro-Migrant LGBT Crowd Hold ‘Performance Protest’ in London

A group called Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants (LGSMigrants) held a “surprise creative action” protest outside the Home Office today, to call for open borders.

LGSMigrants describe themselves “a group of queer activists” who “creatively challenge the right-wing media narrative around migrants and to stand in solidarity with migrants entering the UK”.

Their logo features the phrase “Borders = Death” and their hashtag is “#NoBordersNoBigots”.

They chose the Home office for their ‘performance protest’ as they see it as a, “symbol of the UK’s border enforcement” and held banners which read, “Lesbians and Gays supports the migrants”, and, “Hola Migrants, Adios Borders”.

The protest was held on the same spot as last night’s disastrous 15-person-strong protests against the “racist” Nigel Farage. Some protestors today wore Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and David Cameron masks.

The “creative” aspect of the demonstration appeared to consist of taking turns to write messages on a cardboard wall. One protester wrote, “no human is illegal”, another penned, “Farage and UKIP, we will sh*t on you”. They then “tore down” the wall to represent tearing down borders and the state.

One man dressed up a Theresa May and gave a “racist” speech.

“We are here became of what they are doing in our countries so we have the right to stay here”, said one migrant speaker. “Refugees have the right! Here to stay here to fight!” added another.

The group claims that, “the LGBTQIA+ community has a proud tradition of standing in solidarity with other marginalised groups” and “as queer people we have experience of being demonised and deemed illegal by the state and the media.”

“Let’s show the strength of our queer communities to stand against xenophobia and racism!” they wrote on the Facbook event page.

Their name is a deliberate reference to Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, a group of activists who formed to support striking miners in the 1980s.
