  1. OutRage!

    OutRage! is a British LGBT rights group. It describes itself as "a broad based group of queers committed to radical, non-violent direct action and civil disobedience" and was formed to advocate that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people have the same rights as heterosexual people, to end homophobia and anti-LGBT violence and to affirm the right of queer people to their "sexual freedom, choice and self-determination". It is a group which has at times been criticised for outing individuals who wanted to keep their sexual orientation private and for being xenophobic towards Afro-Caribbean culture and music in their Stop Murder Music campaign. Members of the organisation have also been arrested in the course of some of their actions, and although the membership has declined since the early 1990s, OutRage! remains active.
