This roundtable invites a discussion of how our queer histories are narrated, documented, archived, and preserved. How does narrative encapsulate histories of queer identity, organizing, and survival? How do queer histories inform current conceptions of community, embodiment, and political practice? Topics might include: HIV/AIDS, transgender activism, prisoner rights, housing, employment, art, gender, women, police brutality, racism, borders, migration, and queer responses to popular culture.
