Forty years after the birth of the gay rights movement... In the run up to the National Equality March...
As the fight over equal marriage and “Don’t ask, Don’t tell,” rages on under a new administration...

SHERRY WOLF, EQUALITY MARCH ORGANIZER AND AUTHOR ASKS HOW WILL TRUE EQUALITY FOR THE LGBT COMMUNITY BE WON?

Steering Committee Member for the National Equality March and Author of Sexuality and Socialism: History, Politics, and Theory of LGBT Liberation On Tour

“No other work that comes to my mind explains the history of sexuality and sexual repression in the United States as comprehensively and compellingly.” —Counterpunch

"A wonderful overview of organizing for LGBT liberation... The history is enlightening. [A] valuable guide for activists or anyone interested in learning about the aspects of LGBT movements that mainstream media are eager to hide." –Feministe

"She certainly knows how to fire up a room." –Brown Daily Herald

THE MOVEMENT FOR lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights has greatly expanded sexual freedom, but many challenges confront the struggle for equality. Sexuality and Socialism offers an accessible analysis of many of the most challenging questions for those concerned with full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. Inside are essays on the roots of LGBT oppression, the construction of sexual and gender identities, the history of the gay movement, and how to unite the oppressed and exploited to win sexual liberation for all. Sherry Wolf analyzes different theories about oppression—including those of Marxism, postmodernism, identity politics, and queer theory—and challenges myths about genes, gender, and sexuality.

SHERRY WOLF is an associate editor of the International Socialist Review. She has written for publications including MRZine, CounterPunch, DissidentVoice, and New Politics, and speaks across the country on the struggle for LGBT liberation. 

In addition to being one of the lead organizers, Wolf will be a featured speaker, along with Julian Bond and Cleve Jones, at the NATIONAL EQUALITY MARCH:

ABOUT THE NATIONAL EQUALITY MARCH
As the promise from the Obama administration to be a “fierce advocate” for equality for gays and lesbians has thus far gone unfulfilled—with both the Defense of Marriage Act and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell upheld since the administration took office—activists from across the country are planning a National Equality March as a show of mass support for LGBT rights, with one simple demand: full equality for all LGBT people in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states. Now. For more information about the march visit
