Episode 59: Imagining Queer Justice
This episode features news updates from May Day actions across the world, and a presentation by Ryan Conrad of the Against Equality collective at the Imagining Queer Justice panel at Wesleyan University. Conrad’s talk focuses on queering prison abolition by critiquing LGBT hate crimes legislation. From their website, “Against Equality is an online archive, publishing, and arts collective focused on critiquing mainstream gay and lesbian politics. As queer thinkers, writers and artists, we are committed to dislodging the centrality of equality rhetoric and challenging the demand for inclusion in the institution of marriage, the US military, and the prison industrial complex via hate crimes legislation. \
Featuring new tracks from Lauryn Hill.
