2015 was a monumental year for the 'gay rights' movement, with marriage equality becoming the law of the land. But what does the marriage victory mean in the context of the history of LGBT activisms in America? Who was and wasn't included in this victory? What's next to do, and why are some LGBT organizations shutting their doors? This hour-long course will give a brief overview of where we are, how we got here, and where we're going; with special focus on HIV and AIDS, intersectional identities, transgender rights, and how the history of the LGBT movement in America affects our understanding of all these issues. Teacher: Ben Miller writes short fiction, history, and essays-and directs and curates classical performances-in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. He writes short stories and long essays, mostly about queer people and things. His process involves lots of cursing: always at himself, never at his collaborators.See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
