Monday, April 10, 2017: Author Emily Hobson

Emily Hobson, author of Lavender and Red: Liberation and Solidarity in the Gay and Lesbian Left.

The book is a sprawling history of rarely acknowledged parts of the LGBT movement of the seventies, eighties and nineties. Through the work and words of queer radicals who understood their sexual liberation as intertwined with solidarity against imperialism, war, and racism, the book chronicles gay opposition to the Vietnam War, lesbian support for grand jury resisters and women who fought back against sexual violence, queer organizing against gentrification, the New Right, and U.S. intervention in Central America which helped birth the AIDS direct action movement.
