Original post

A group of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals resolved at a meeting in Central London 22 Oct 2019 to set up a new “LGB Alliance” to counteract the confusion between sex and gender which is now widespread in the public sector and elsewhere.

The participants – who included former employees and supporters of the lobby group Stonewall, plus doctors, psychiatrists, academics and lawyers with expertise in child safeguarding – agreed a foundation statement centring biological sex rather than the gender theories which they regard as pseudo-scientific and dangerous. This will be available in due course once our web site is launched

The meeting followed a refusal by Stonewall, which was originally set up to fight legal discrimination against gay men and lesbians, to respond to a petition asking it to acknowledge the range of valid viewpoints around sex, gender and transgender politics.

We are a brand new organisation yet we have been inundated with offers of support and help. This means that we have to act quickly to harness this enthusiasm and energy.

Our plans are as follows: Pre launch - now until Jan 2020

Establish legal entity and apply for full charitable status - work already begun on this

Engage professional help to design logo and marketing materials (task based not full time)

Engage digital media assistant to run social media accounts - as above

Web site to be professionally enhanced and optimised - as above

One salaried administrative staff member to coordinate the project staff and the volunteer working groups already set up (comms team, mission statement team, EHRC enquiry team, international liaison team, UK liaison team, steering group) 

All internet, phone and communication costs

An event organiser will be needed to arrange the official launch of the group in Jan 2020

Launch costs will include venue hire and security, subsidies for anyone attending who cannot afford the cost of travel, reimbursement of speakers’ travel costs, PR and marketing.

A new charity has been formed recently to support young people (of both sexes but mainly girls) who have changed their mind.  As teenagers they started on the path of transition only to find that as young adults they come to realise that a terrible mistake has been made. Some have had puberty blocking drugs; others have had healthy breast removed.  This is a very sad phenomenon which is growing in number.  We want to offer support to this group through mentoring schemes, meetings, practical advice and social events.

As our organisation grows we will enlist individual supporters but may also have crowd funding efforts in the future for specific projects. So far all our support has come from the grassroots.  We do not anticipate funding from corporations but we may apply for grants from other charitable foundations in due course.

The new group aims to be an umbrella organisation that supports freedom of speech, accurate biological definitions of sex and fact-based education. It will maintain links to all groups who fight for the rights of lesbians, bisexuals and gay men at a time when Stonewall brands same-sex attraction as transphobic.

It has also called for an end to ‘Stonewall Law’, which deliberately misrepresents the Equality Act, and has asked the Equality and Human Rights Commission to investigate whether Stonewall, as a recipient of public funds, is upholding its public duty to represent the voices of LGB people and facilitate discussion between different groups protected under the Equality Act.

The members of the new Alliance agreed, as part of a 20-point position statement, that:

• lesbianism and homosexuality is same-sex (not same-gender) attraction;

• lesbians are biological women who are attracted to other biological women;

• sex is not ‘assigned’ at birth but observed;

• it is not transphobic for lesbians to have their own spaces and institutions which exclude male-bodied people;

• there is often a link between transgender ideology and the suppression of lesbianism and homosexuality;

• telling children who do not conform to gender stereotypes that they are born in the wrong body is damaging and regressive;

• the soaring numbers of teenage girls suddenly presenting as trans is evidence of social contagion and discomfort about lesbianism

    Gender and Sex are a dichotomy that must be respected. Gender is an arbitrary abstract, socially and historically contingent.Sex is a biological unavoidable fact.

    Freedom of thought is important. You may be right, you may be wrong. But you have a right to think what you think.
