My short experimental film on HIV/AIDS and inter-generational memory loss, things are different now…, has shown in Berlin, New York, and London, and screenings in Prague, Copenhagen, Toronto, San Francisco, New York, Portland OR, and Providence RI are all in the works. In fact, the short will be showing in Portland OR today as part of the Where Do We Go From Here exhibition.
I have a book review of Benjamin Heim Shepard‘s Play, Creativity, and Social Movements (2011) the most recent edition of the journal Socialism & Democracy and I am working on a review of Nicola Barker’s Not The Marrying Kind: A Feminist Critique of Same-Sex Marriage (2012) for the soon-to-be-launched QED: A Journal in LGBTQ Worldmaking.
I’ve also got an interview with New York City based prolific writer and agitator Sarah Schulman in the forthcoming issue of e-flux journal edited by Carlos Motta. In it we discuss her most recent two book as well as the nature of queer collaborations, the rapidly changing publishing industry, queer mentorship, and the politics of always coming from the margins.
Against Equality also just got word that the book coming out of the After Homosexual conference I presented at a year ago finally got the green light. A co-authored piece between Yasmin Nair, Kárma Chavez, and myself titled, Against Equality, Against Capitalism: Towards an Economic Critique of Gay Marriage will appear there. The three of us also co-authored the introduction to another forthcoming Australia-based book project called To The Exclusion of All Others where our piece titled, Against Equality: From the Belly of the Beast to the Land Down Under, will appear.
In other Against Equality news, I will be participating in a panel with Eric Stanley and Reina Gossett titled Imagining Queer Justice: Prison Abolition and LGBT Hate Crimes Legislation on April 26th at Wesleyan University. On this panel organized by the wonderful Margot Weiss, I will be talking about Against Equality and or work challenging the logic of LGBT hate crime laws which is highlighted in our most recent anthology, Against Equality: Prisons Will Not Protect You.
