Remembering who we are

January 14, 2018 ·

You can hear anti-queer people bloviating nonstop about who they think we are and after a while, this psychological erasure is can take its toll. Today we remember who we are with:

  • A new segment examining the avalanche of sex abuse scandals in the anti-queer movement.
  • Ray Hill’s 2007 Transgender Unity Banquet speech on remembering who we are.
  • An essay by the radical feminist John Stoltenberg titled What the trans moment has to offer radical feminism.
  • And Gwen Smith’s Gender Nation
