Largest LGTB Libertarian event to date planned for Valentine's Eve

At the 2015 International Students for Liberty Conference held in Washington, DC, February 13-15, gay and lesbian libertarian students will hold a dance at Town, a popular nightlife spot in DC's U Street Corridor.

Organizers believe this will be the largest libertarian gay and lesbian event ever held.



Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls (...and gender non-conforming individuals), we are pleased to announce the first official LGBT libertarian social at the The 8th Annual International Students For Liberty Conference! If you're queer or queer-friendly, come on down to Town for a night of dancing, drag shows, new friends, and "networking." Let's get to #twerk!

HERE'S THE PLAN:
9:30 PM — We'll congregate at the lobby of the Marriott Wardman Parkafter the opening social for the ISFLC officially ends.
9:45 PM — We'll depart via Uber to Town Danceboutique on U Street (approximately a 10-minute ride).
10:00 PM — We'll enter the club ($10 cover for 21+, $12 for 18-21).
10:30 PM — The drag show begins! Grab a drank and enjoy the entertainment.
11:00 PM — We'll dance the night away! A quieter side room is also available for those late-night libertarian debates.

TAKE NOTE:
—Town is 18+ on Friday night, so those of you who aren't quite of drinking age can still enjoy the fun!
—Although this is branded as an LGBT event, Town is totally inclusive to anyone and everyone who is gay friendly. You don't need to be queer to enjoy the cheer!

Russian Libertarians

ИТОГИ 2014 - 12 декабря 2014 года, «Демократический Петербург» и ЛПР провели акцию в честь «Дня Конституции России». - Либертарианская партия России



RESULTS 2014





Published: December 31, 2014



2014.03.16.Piece.Rally



Retiring in 2014 was for the Libertarian Party of Russia a year of victories and defeats.

We once again refused to register the party, some of our activists have emigrated in search of a better life of the country, the decline of the protest movement in Russia, the victory of the Maidan in Kiev, the annexation of the Crimea and the war in the Donbass - we have split as well as our families, friends and acquaintances. Under the spell of the Russian state propaganda machine were many prominent foreign libertarians. Confronted with his "stationary bandit", they often uncritically follow the maxim "my enemy's enemy - my friend." Frankly, that in the first half of apathy and despondency overtaken many of our activists. This was one of the main reasons for the failure of the Faith Kichanovoy at Moscow City Duma elections.



But we never give up. We learn from our failures. September 14, 2014 our chairman Andrew Shalnev was elected to the Board of Deputies of the native Pushkino in the Moscow region.

We fought against the war in Ukraine. Were among the organizers of mass anti-war protest actions in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg.



We actively pursue our educational activities. For 2014 held Forums Singles in Novosibirsk, Vologda, Penza, Kaliningrad, Orsk and Pskov, meeting libertarians in Belgorod. Through the efforts of Marlene Martirosova organized a large-scale two-day conference "Austrians" in Rostov-on-Don. And of course, successfully passed VI Reading Adam Smith. Newly registered Organizing Committee of the party and at the beginning of 2015 served in the Ministry of Justice for registration of the party at the federal level.



We are alive! We are growing! And we have big plans in 2015. The looming economic and political crisis - a time of new opportunities, the preparation of libertarian reforms in our country. During the darkest hour comes the dawn.

Happy New Year!

Her guidelines for prospective authors (edited for our blog) are:

The last section is on the oppression of women and racial and sexual minorities.  
I have no one to do an intro for that section. 
If you are familiar with the issues in this section [see below]. 
I have guidelines available. But only volunteer if you really do know something about those topics.
