Has the Gay Movement Failed? Martin Duberman with Jason Baumann

In the years since Stonewall, there has been a gradual shift in both cultural attitudes and U.S. government policy. According to Martin Duberman, this shift has been more broad and conservative than deep and transformative. A renowned historian and activist of the American left and LGBTQ movements, Duberman recounts the progressive vision for society as a whole and critiques the left’s failure to embrace the queer potential for social transformation. Not without hope, Duberman’s history lesson can shine a light towards a truly inclusive and expansive society.

Duberman is the Distinguished Professor of History Emeritus at City University of New York, where he founded and directed the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies. He will be joined in conversation by Jason Baumann, Coordinator of Humanities and LGBT Collections at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.
