This conference will commemorate a moment in which LGBTQ politics were intimately bound up with anti-racism and left solidarity movements: against apartheid, war, and US imperialism. Our goal is to reflect back on the queer left and its legacies for today. Over two days, we will bring students and activists working for racial justice and LGBTQ freedom into dialogue with historians and veteran activists. Panels include a training in civil disobedience.
