      The gay liberation movement of the late s through the mid s [1] urged lesbians and gay men to engage in radical direct action, and to counter societal shame with gay pride. [2] In the feminist spirit of the personal being political, the most basic form of activism was an emphasis on coming out to family, friends and colleagues, and living life as an openly lesbian or gay person. [2]. The ISR’s SHERRY WOLF, author of Sexuality and Socialism: History, Politics, and Theory of LGBT Liberation (Haymarket Books, ), interviewed him. YOUR GROUNDBREAKING essay, “Capitalism and Gay Identity,” published in , uses the Marxist method to root the emergence of a distinctive gay and lesbian identity in capitalism.

      In he self-published a collection of internal party documents relating to its discussion of the gay liberation movement, under the title Gay Liberation and Socialism: Documents from the Discussions on Gay Liberation Inside the Socialist Workers Party ().Born: June 6, (age 78), United States. Sexuality and Socialism is a remarkably accessible analysis of many of the most challenging questions for those concerned with full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people.. Inside are essays on the roots of LGBT oppression, the construction of sexual and gender identities, the history of the gay movement, and how to unite the oppressed and exploited to win sexual.

      Gay liberation has come a long way. In the last decade alone we have seen six legislative changes in favour of gay rights. Attitudes have shifted - a recent poll found 90 percent supportive of gay rights, yet only 20 years ago 70 percent of the British public thought homosexuality was "always or mostly wrong". IT WAS AS A RESULT OF THE BOLSHEVIK Revolution that socialism came closest to embracing sexual liberation, including gay liberation, if only temporarily. Almost immediately after the Revolution, voluntary homosexual relations for persons 14 and older were legalized.

Wolf proposes to use a “Marxist worldview to examine historical, political, and theoretical questions of sexual and gender oppression in order to frame an argument for how we can organize for LGBT. As the Gay Liberation movement began to gain ground, Socialist organizations' policies evolved, and many groups actively campaigned for gay rights.

Notable examples are the feminist Freedom Socialist Party, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, the International Socialist Organization, Socialist Alternative (United States) and the Socialist Party USA.Sexuality and Socialism is enlivened in its engagement with a number of controversies, including those over the alleged biological determination of homosexuality, the myth of Black homophobia, and the consequences of postmodernist theories for the politics of gay liberation.The cover photo on Sherry Wolf’s book shows a protest rally with a woman holding a highlighted rainbow flag.

Radical gay and lesbian activists, one assumes. Look closely, though, and you’ll see that the woman is sporting a Hillary for president button. The contrast seems odd for a book on socialism.
