Amber L. Hollibaugh: The LGBTQ Movement’s Radical Vision

Even though there’s plenty to be proud of after this year’s Pride weekend, there’s still a long way to go for the LGBTQ movement.


While the gains of the past several decades have seen the LGBTQ community gain legal standing when it comes to marriage and the military, the radical nature of the movement’s early emphasis on sexuality and desire is too often ignored. Amber L. Hollibaugh of Queers for Economic Justice explains to Laura Flanders that until we can embrace sexuality as part of our political discourse, we will not be able to seek an agenda of true economic and political equality.

Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner.
