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.

Event Description:

Given the notable gains of LGBT civil rights struggles in recent years, as well the theoretical and practical tensions within these movements, the present moment provides an important opportunity to reassess the goals and strategies of LGBT politics. Please join us on Saturday, April 22nd, in the Celeste Auditorium of the New York Public Library, as an array of scholars and activists assess the current political landscape and consider the future of LGBT activism.
