UMass Amherst | Student Union Ballroom
This conference will commemorate a moment in which LGBTQ politics were intimately bound up with anti-racism and left solidarity movements: against apartheid, war, and US imperialism. Our goal is to reflect back on the queer left and its legacies for today. Over two days, we will bring students and activists working for racial justice and LGBTQ freedom into dialogue with historians and veteran activists. The conference includes speaker and panel sessions, activist training, and a dance party. ISSR is proud to co-sponsor this event, organized by the UMass Amherst Department of Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies, Department of History, Stonewall Center, and the Advocacy, Inclusion and Support Programs cluster of Student Affairs and Campus Life.
