TONIGHT: “Against Equality” at NYU

6 Oct

Pride Month and Queer Union Present:

Against Equality: Queer Challenges to the Politics of Inclusion

How do policies of “family values” coerce conformity while cutting government funding for programs such as childcare, healthcare, and reproductive services?

How does same-sex marriage reflect a narrow model of gay citizenship based on consumption, private domesticity, and homonormativity?

How can we gain legal recognition of a wider range of relationships, households, and families?

How can we separate benefits from martial status to provide access to vital government support programs for all people?

Join us for a panel discussion with the organization “Against Equality,” a queer collective that dissects the logic of the national campaigns for gay marriage and begs us to question what our queerest futures might look like.

This event is free and open to the public. Venue is wheelchair accessible. If you need sign language interpretation services or other accommodations, please let us know as soon as possible.
