A new “LGB Alliance” group that launched in London last night is being slammed online by the people it claims to represent.

In a tweet, lawyer Allison Bailey of Garden Court Chambers said, “This is an historic moment for the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual movement. *LGB Alliance* launched in London tonight, and we mean business. Spread the word, gender extremism is about to meet its match.”

However, lesbian, gay and bisexual people were quick to call out the new group – blasting it for being “transphobic“, “disgusting” and “vile“.

Many of them also pointed out that many members of the new group are straight, as are a lot of the people backing it online.

Several lesbians and bisexual women told the new “LGB Alliance” that “you do not speak for me“.

And they weren’t the only people from the community that the new group purports to represent to distance themselves.

Bisexual and gay men also criticised the “LGB Alliance” for being anti-trans.

And multiple people pointed out that the new “LGB” group seems to consist of a surprising number of straight people.

Which was also indicated by the number of self-professed “straight allies” replying to Bailey’s original tweet announcing the “LGB Alliance”.
