To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, Crossroads Fund is chronicling fearless queer-led organizing in Chicago through a multi-media project named “Queering Left.”
Queering Left is series of interviews with organizers who have participated in transformative and visionary Chicago movements and organizations. These ten interviews will trace how being queer has been defined as a radical political act and how new generations of queer organizers have continued to evolve the definition of queer politics since Stonewall. We hope to illustrate how queer rights are intersectional. Queer rights are women’s rights, immigrant rights, worker rights, the fight for abolition, etc.
Crossroads Fund will be releasing one interview per month starting in July on our website. Each interview will be available to stream, download, or read and will feature other photos, videos, and other media that describes the full organizing work of the activists.
