Prof. Jeffrey Redding from St. Louis University will give a talk, co-sponsored by Lambda and the ILJ.
Prof. Redding's topic comes from a paper he published entitled "Queer/Religious Friendship in the Obama Era."  From the abstract: "I argue that queers have been hurt by mainstream gay and lesbian political advocacy - the kind of advocacy, for example, that both led up to and followed Proposition 8 - and that, as a consequence, queers should actively contest and act to counter this gay and lesbian advocacy in political and legal arenas."  Furthermore, Prof. Redding argues that queers and radically religious opponents of same-sex marriage should be allies in confronting mainstream LGBT political advocacy.
