June 27th: Beyond Gay Marriage




This special one-hour broadcast is a documentary offering a radical Queers critique of the Gay Marriage movement and how it is driving a more assimiliationist gay politics. It is 40 years since the Stonewall rebellion generated the birth of the gay liberation movement, but the gay movement today is a far different movement than the radical politics of the 1960’s. While many have assumed that gay marriage is important to most Queers, this documentary challenges that myth and shows how the emphasis on gay marriage is part of the loss of a radical Queer critique. We discuss how we got to where we are and what kind of political work radical Queers are dong. You will hear the voices of many radical queers and academics sharing their perspective on what a radical Queer movement and politics could be.



This documentary includes the voices of:
Kenyon Farrow, Executive Director of Queers for Economic Justice
Brian Bassinger, Executive Director, Aids Housing Alliance of San Francisco

Tommi Avicolli Mecca, Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco
Professor Lisa Duggan, NYU
Professor Dean Spade , Seattle University School of Law
Professor Priya Kandaswamy, University of Portland
and many more dynamic and articulate voices for LGBT liberation in the context of all liberation.

  1. This seems to be a great documentary. I'm sure that there are so many other interests beyond this gay marriage approval but I don't know who's interested in what.....
    What i noticed is that the politicians that took this decision are very popular on some of the top rated gay sites.....maybe this is what they wanted because I'm sure they know that this community is increasing considerably.
