Episode #14: Three socialists on how we accidentally started a corporate boycott of Auckland Pride

We sheepishly slink back online to give an update on our episode from 3 weeks ago, wherein we triumphantly claimed that the pigs had withdrawn from our city’s Pride parade. It turns out, fucking everybody else is pulling out alongside them!

None of us on the show have ever pulled out in our lives, but we do our best to give a socialist analysis of exactly what is going on in Auckland’s gay community right now. With the pigs, the military, and a bunch of banks cutting and running, Pride is in danger of not being fucking boring. We also answer a carefully-curated selection of questions about Pride, gay politics, and what you (YOU!) can do to make Pride communist.

We also open the show with our “The Labour Party is Not Your Friend” segment, thrashing the pathetic neoliberals in power for their attacks on union power.

We close up the show by reading an article criticising the Pride Parade by a guy who has, totally coincidentally, spent the last 30 years using his media platform to attack gay rights.

Either way, New Zealand’s interesting gays and our squad have raised more than $20,000 to put on our own Pride Parade if we have to, so we’ll see you all there.

As Mao Zedong teaches, revolutionaries are like fish and the people are our water. If you want to kick us a cup of the good stuff and keep us from suffocating, consider supporting the show on Patreon: www.patreon.com/peoplespolitburo
