Event description: 

In the 1970′s and 1980′s gay and lesbian activists advocated on behalf of gay prisoners, while themselves organized to claim their rights to sexual protection and expression. By exploring the understandings, misunderstandings, and awkward alliances forged between queer prison insiders and outsiders, Professor Kunzel’s talk illuminates the contours of new gay norms in the making.
