In this episode we talk to Feroz, a decolonial marxist feminist and political organizer.
She shares with us some moments from the rich history of gender diverse peoples and radical organizing. We talk to her about the contributions of Marsha P Johnson, Silvia Rivera, the Gay Liberation Front, and STAR and the connections between the TLGBQ movement and other organizations.
We discuss different struggles for trans people and non binary folks within organizing spaces historically, and questions of different models of queer and trans organizing.
We discuss the relationships between white supremacy, colonialism and the gender binary. We talk about coalitions of solidarity, and the historical and ongoing struggles to create the conditions for trans liberation.
We also get into white fears of decolonization, white betrayal of working class comrades, and the material and stake of white supremacy and settler colonialism in contrast with the genocidal and geocidal historical trajectory of whiteness.
