The LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans and Queer) caucus – like the Black Power, Disabled, and Women’s caucuses – is autonomously organised by self-defining activists within the National Campaign Against Fees Cuts. It serves the dual purpose of fighting to ensure that NCAFC’s politics (and those of the broader left) adequately reflect the experiences and needs of LGBTQ people, and intervening in LGBTQ politics from a broad left position.
The caucus has a committee of five members identifying across all of the Campaign’s other caucuses, as well as one representative on the National Committee (who is recallable by the committee or caucus membership). Elections are held annually at National Conference, or more frequently at the request of the membership.
The current LGBTQ representative on the National Committee is Raquel Palmeira.
For updates and input on the caucus’s work between Conferences, or to contact us for any other reason, please email [email protected]. We are working on holding discussions via NCAFC’s own discussion forum, but are communicating informally by email for now.
