ABOUT THE CONVERSATION
Despite celebrated and hard-won advances in equality, the deeply diverse LGBTQ community has always been targeted by bias and hate. In recent months that antagonism has flared, entwined with other forms of intolerance. Now, as people who openly disparage LGBTQ rights fill key posts within the U.S. Government, and an old, anti-Other sentiment gains new legitimacy, what are the challenges and goals of LGBTQ activism today? What is the historical context for this battle, and what guides those at its front lines?
Beyond these current challenges, what is our vision of victory and our path toward it? How do we organize across communities to build a future where our differences are prized and human justice is available to all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity?
Join us for a free public forum with four thinkers and activists who will bring powerful perspective to these questions.
