CF has consistently showed up and supported the LGBTQI+ community and will always continue to do so. During Pride, we marched for two marginalized and oppressed groups: the LGBTQ+ community and nonhuman animals. We live in a system that treats certain groups and individuals as “lesser than”. It teaches us to treat nonhuman animals as lesser than us, to treat their bodies like commodities and products and to refuse to see them as individuals with their own needs and desires. It also allows for us to see one another as lesser too, for reasons such as who we love or what gender we are or aren’t. This system wants anyone who struggles, who is “lesser” to be invisible.
CF’s stance is that neither group is invisible. LGBTQ+ people deserve equal consideration legally and socially because it’s not their gender identity or sexual orientation that makes them matter – it’s the fact that they exist. Nonhuman animals too deserve equal consideration because it’s not their species that defines them or makes them worthy. Gay, straight, non-binary, trans or cis – we are all allies with animals. Their liberation is our liberation.
