On Saturday, April 22nd, I will be part of a series of panels at the New York Public Library on the future of queer politics, organized by historian Martin Duberman. I'll be talking at noon on a panel entitled "Beyond Marriage," along with the incredible authors and theorists Michael Warner and Katherine Franke. A full description of the event is here.
Where Do We Go From Here? A Roundtable Discussion on Future Fronts in the Battles for Family Diversity
How can we push for greater acknowledgement of family diversity in all parts of law and society? As we’ve learned from the fight for same-sex marriage, it takes decades of small-scale, local activism before federal-level changes are even imaginable. Around the country, in a variety of ways, many individuals and organizations are already beginning to tackle this thorny issue. In this session we will stage a roundtable discussion of actual, practical steps that can be taken to move the discussion forward on this issue.
Join me as I give a special tour of "The 1970s: The Blossoming of a
Queer Enlightenment," the current exhibition at the Leslie + Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art.
