After the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling, rainbow memes and #lovewins hashtags flooded the internet. But we also began to hear more about what activists and academics have been saying for decades—that LGBTQ politics is about #morethanmarriage. The marriage equality campaign has been criticized for making invisible all of the many pressing issues that impact diverse LGBTQ-identified individuals. Since the ruling, donations to some LGBTQ organizations have declined, and longstanding organizations have shut down.
This conference will convene an urgently needed discussion about this turning point. We will debate the way forward through plenary roundtable conversations among both established and rising figures in LGBTQ politics and scholarship, and through dozens of academic panels, roundtables, workshops, and other breakout sessions put together from responses to our open call.
This promises to be a landmark event, so please join us!
