Politics & Pride: From LGBTQ+ Marriage to Trans Rights
Presented by Massachusetts Historical Society and the History Project
This program looks at how the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the political sphere has led to the current moment. Panelists will examine what issues were deemed most important over the years and how activists’ priorities have evolved in the present. How have the success and failures of past movements in Massachusetts informed campaigns today? Arline Isaacson, Carmel Valentine, and Tanya Neslusan will highlight their current work at the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition and Mass Equality and discuss issues that are still being fought for from affordable housing to healthcare to trans rights.
