As courtroom battles turn into media frenzies and political wrangling, how are present conflicts redefining attitudes toward the queer experience in America? What conflicts are missing from dominant historical narratives about marriage, national security, social media, and policing of bathrooms, among others? The panel brings together activists, writers, and historians to discuss the changing political and social landscape of conflict in the LGBT community. Panelists include: Alexis De Veaux, James Downs, Sarah Schulman, Mecca Jamilah Sullivan, Timothy Stewart-Winter; with moderator Hrag Vartanian.
