Description

Mitchel Raphael, Rinaldo Walcott, and Wayson Choy reflect on histories of LGBT activism and discuss the future of queer politics.

Part 1 asks what the next "queer war" is, what liberation means now, and how young people feel about queerness. The group talks about where queers of colour and trans people fit in gay politics, and how black, Jewish, Latina, and drag queen stories have been written out of history. The dangers of wanting to change the world.

Part 2 addresses the differences between gay and lesbian politics and trans politics and the "civil wars" among queers who are working out racism, ageism, transphobia, and sexism. How gay people often do not connect accross different groups.

Part 3 reflects on the importance of queer histories and how we can celebrate our successes while remembering their costs.
