November’s disheartening passage of Proposition 8 has stimulated a range of discussion within LGBT communities of color — from criticism of the tactics utilized by the No on 8 campaign to despair over the homophobic and racist fissures exposed in communities of color and the LGBT community in the aftermath of Prop 8’s passage. This esteemed panel will address tough questions such as: Is Gay Marriage really a Civil Rights concern for queer people of color? Should focus be placed upon combating racism within the LGBT community and homophobia within communities of color as a first step? Can both sides recover from depictions of gay marriage supporters as threats to children and gay marriage opponents as promoters of hatred?
