The latest in the GLBT Historical Society’s monthly “Fighting Back” series exploring contemporary queer issues in a historical context, “LGBTQ Lives, Identity Politics and Electoral Politics” will offer a multigenerational conversation about the role of sexual orientation, gender and other identities in electoral politics.

A panel of historians, veteran organizers and younger activists will discuss the changing role of identity in political discourse, how a candidate’s identity influences voter choice, representation of diverse populations in government, and how this history can help inform today’s resistance movements.
