Labor and LGBT Coalition Building: Exploring the Dynamics of Pride at Work

Sun, August 17, 10:30am to 12:10pm, TBA

Abstract

The ongoing expansion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) movement coincides with a continued contraction of long-standing mainstream labor organizations. The intersection of labor and LGBT politics represents an opportunity for each movement to increase their membership bases, expand their circle of influence, and to more fully embrace an intersectional framework for understanding social and economic justice. Drawing from interviews and participation with Pride at Work, an LGBT/labor organization, we explore how collaboration between LGBT and labor organizations can potentially benefit and strengthen both the labor movement and the movement for LGBT rights.
