The New Sexual Politics: Equality or Conformity?

program date: 
Sun, 06/28/2009

 Is the fight for gay marriage the path to a queer conservatism?  The Old Mole's Frann Michel makes the case for the revolutionary program of the LGBT movement: to get beyond "the laws and the ideologically dominant conventions around sexuality and family relations" (i.e. marriage).   Frann's commentary draws on many sources, and you can find them, as well as her text, right here.

Is there a T in Gay Pride?

program date: 
Mon, 06/15/2009

Portland’s Gay Pride wrapped this last weekend.  Despite the “unity” theme, at least one group chose this year to go their separate way.  Why did trans march organizers decide to postpone their event—renamed Gender (Free) For All—until August 1st? Do trans people really belong in the LGBQ community anyway?  Especially if they no longer identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual—or if they never did?

We addressed these questions and more. We were joined by three guests, including an organizer from the Gender (Free) For All; a local trans political activist; and a woman with Harry  Benjamin's  Syndrome
