In celebration of Queer Pride we discuss whether the Gay Marriage movement is really the direction Queers want to move in. We look at some of the conservative, and even racist aspects of the "Gay Marriage" movement and examine what a more progressive movement would look like. We talk to N.Y.U. Professor Lisa Duggan, author of "Twilight of Equality: Neoliberalism, Cultural Politics and the Attack on Democracy," Gay Shame member Mattilda (aka Matt Bernstein Sycamore) editor of "That’s Revolting; Queers strategies for Resisting Assimilation," and Matt Richardson and Marlon M. Bailey, two recent graduates of the African American Studies graduate program at U.C. Berkeley.
