“The work of the political activist inevitably involves a certain tension between the requirement that position be taken on current issues as they arise and the desire that one's contributions will somehow survive the ravages of time.” -Angela Davis

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?
