Radical Queer Convergence!!

3

This weekend we’ll be in Columbus Ohio at Queer in Flux, a radical queer convergence which seeks to critically question the state of mainstream LGBT movements.

From their website:
“We hope that by holding this convergence we can help to expand notions of what queer liberation really means. QIF demands that folks wake up to the fact that assimilation does not grant you privilege, safety, or the good life. No my friends, it limits the boundaries of our freedom, it silences the voices of the already forgotten, it further margnizalizes queer identity into a controllable, sellable, palatable little box.”
