Segrest will be joined by local activists Mandy Carter, Kendra R. Johnson, and Grace Nichols for a discussion of their work in queer movements over the past 25 years and the challenges to those movements today from the Right. The New Press will be reissuing this with a new introduction and afterword by Segrest.
