Group of LGBT + activists called Sexual Avengers attacked this week's awards in the real estate industry in #London, writes Pink News. They threw fertiliser and roaches on the red carpet. They stated that the protest was a statement against "the urbanisation of London and the discrimination of its diverse communities."
The event was taking place at the Grosvenor House hotel on Park Lane in London.
Tickets to the #Property Industry event were going for up to several hundreds of pounds while a table price was as much as £3,050..
Members of the Sexual Avengers announced that they attacked the happening in order to bring awareness for the lack of genuinely affordable homes, acceptable rent, and help for LGBT+ homeless people.
"Property owners are getting richer while forcing the poor on the streets, or in filthy apartments filled with pests"
The protesters criticised “the gentrification of London and the displacement of its diverse communities”.
A spokesman for the group said: "We have a disfavour with the real estate market in which the landlords and agents are sentencing us to live in precarious dwellings with dirt and vermin."
"Property developers are only getting richer, building a multimillion- dollar projects and making the working class and the poor queer people on the streets," he added.
"I have lost a home after losing my partner"
Activist Stacey Jones told the Gay UK ". My partner died of cancer last April, and in May, I was thrown out from the house that we lived in.
They could not understand how can I have a child being in a relationship with a woman."
"I just lost a partner and I had to sit there and justify my own sexuality. I had to justify why I deserve a house where we lived, where I took care of her, the house in which she died, "added Jones.
"Property owners need to make homes for need, and not for greed. I have been a homeless person twice in my life, and I would probably be homeless right now if it was not for Stonewall (an organisation that promotes gay rights). It is maddening to see the number of people living on the streets compared to the number of empty properties." Stacey Jones said. #Lgbt Activists
