A look at what  some progressive Queer activists are doing in the US and in Germany.

Recently at Berlin’s Gay Pride, racism inside LGBTQ movements was publically highlighted when Queer theorist Judith Butler refused an award by the Berlin Gay Pride organizers. Paola Bacchetta speaks with Jin Haritaworn, a trans member of the queer of color anti-racism group SUSPECT, about racism in German LGBTQ movements and society.

And Lisa Dettmer talks to Caitlin Breedlove about a new progressive Queer coalition that developed out of the US Social Forum that is attempting to create a new national LGBT coalition with a new agenda  that addresses the needs of vulnerable LGBTQ communities and the structural causes of queer oppression.
