Opting out of Hetero-Normative Pathways: Queer Choices vs. Marriage and Family
This does not necessarily mean that alternatives to hetero-normative coupling and reproduction have lost relevance or validity, but that they are better framed in terms of queer politics than LGTBQ rights. The queer perspective ranges from dense academic theory, to community discourse, to radical politics. In this Members’ Series talk, Jessica Saunders will introduce one queer perspective on relationships, courtship, marriage and community. Cristina Moya will follow with a discussion of the morality of reproduction and reproductive choices. The speakers hope to generate a lively debate about the choices we all face, within the context of the social and political forces that so often shape them, but often remain practically unexamined.
