Over recent years, debate about left wing political strategy has hinged on whether one is for or against identity politics. But is such a binary even helpful for those interested in addressing the climate crisis, threats to LGBTQ+ rights and a society marked by ever higher inequality?

Does it mean a cross-class alliance is impossible, or not necessary, for the kinds of policies socialists want to implement?
