How has Marxism informed the struggles for queer liberation? And how have movements for the rights of sexual minorities changed the terrain of American society?
American Homo offers a sweeping interpretation of the political, cultural and economic struggles of lesbian, gay and bisexual people to reveal how sexual minorities have challenged and changed American society. These provocative essays by long-time activist, writer, and theorist Jeffrey Escoffier tracks the lesbian and gay movements across the contested terrain of American political life.
Presentations by: Rebecca Ariel Porte, Jeffrey Escoffier, Amber Hollibaugh, Richard Kim, Christopher Mitchell, Robert Owen Hawk, Max Fox, and Hector Lionel.
