“She thought it was the misfortune of poetry to be seldom safely enjoyed by those who enjoyed it completely; and that the strong feelings which alone could estimate it truly were the very feelings which ought to taste it but sparingly." -Jane Austen

March 3: The Present & Future of LGBT Political Identity

present future lgbtThe Present & Future of LGBT Political Identity

a lecture by Patrick Egan with discussant Leonie Huddy

March 3, Thursday
6:30 to 8 pm

Patrick J. Egan, Politics, New York University

Leonie Huddy, Political Science, SUNY Stony Brook

The U.S. Supreme Court’s extension of the right to marry to all 50 states caps a remarkable transformation in law and policy with regard to gay rights, as well as a change in Americans’ attitudes about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people whose speed is without parallel in recent American history. In this sense, LGBT people are following a path tread by many minority groups as they’ve moved away from stigma and discrimination toward de jure equality and assimilation. What does this mean for their politics? LGBTs are currently among the most loyal members of the liberal Democratic coalition in the United States. Will this cohesiveness persist, or will gay people’s political identity become less distinctive over time?
