HAS GAY LIBERATION LIBERATED US?


Calling All Same Gender Loving (SGL), Lesbian, Gay, and Bi  Sisters:

In the wake of the Marriage Equality Amendment, and other sweeping changes wrought by the Gay and Lesbian Liberation Movement, it is clear that the relationship between the larger black community and the SGL/LGBT community has not shifted discernibly.  

That is, by-and-large, our black hetero family still hold us at the same distance, or with the same reservations, and consternation (if not, out-and-out disrespect) as they did before.  Which leads us to ask:

Has Gay Liberation liberated us?

To what extent do we, or don’t we, SGL Brothers and Sisters work, play, or engage with other on a regular, on-going basis?

To what extent do we engage each other as family, friends, intimates, allies, etcetera?

While there is no law that says we must embrace each other thusly, to the extent that we are not already doing so, how might our lives be better respectively and collectively if we did? 

Does our lack of desire for the opposite sex incapacitate us from collaboration?

What might happen if we came together to dialogue about such differences and commonalities as we observe respectively and collectively, on the way to building our own liberation movement?

Let’s find out, shall we?
