- Does gay marriage support the right-wing goal of linking access to basic human rights like health care and economic security to an inherently conservative tradition?
- Will the ability of queers to fight in wars of imperialism help liberate and empower LGBT people around the world?
- Does hate-crime legislation affirm and strengthen historically anti-queer institutions like the police and prisons rather than dismantling them?
Â "In an era when so much of the lesbian and gay movement seems to echo the rhetoric of the mainstream Establishment, the work of Against Equality is an important provocation and corrective.... I hope this book is read widely, particularly by the people who will most disagree with it; in the tradition of the great political pamphleteers, this collection should spark debate around some of the key issues for our movement." --Dennis Altman, author of Homosexual: Oppression & Liberation
Â "Against Equality Â issues a radical call for social transformation. Against and beyond the "holy trinity" of pragmatic gay politics--marriage, militarism, and prison--the queer and trans voices archived in this collection offer a radical left critique of neoliberalism, capitalism, and state oppression. In a format accessible and enlivening, equally at home in the classroom and on the street, this book keeps our political imaginations alive. Prepare to be challenged, educated, and inspired." --Margot Weiss, author of Techniques of Pleasure
