We still demand a queer political agenda that centralizes the experiences of prisoners, poor people, immigrants, trans people, and people with disabilities. We reject a gay agenda that pours millions of dollars into campaigns for access to oppressive institutions for a few that stand to benefit.
This is why I cannot stand behind gay marriage or behind the queer community as a whole. Ask yourselves if you want to be part of a community that prioritizes marriage over the rights and protection of the poor, the black & brown, and the disenfranchised. The gay community needs to step it up or get out of my face.
