Kenyon Farrow's Queer Tour

We didn't have enough time tonight to play our entire excerpt from Kenyon Farrow's "Queer Tour" presentation at the UW-Madison campus, so here's a little more. Farrow, a policy institute fellow with the National Gay And Lesbian Task Force, was on the University of Wisconsin campus last week to discuss moving away from using biology as a central argument in the fight for LGBTQ equality.

Farrow argued that the biological argument is based in racism and classism, and hasn’t been successful in the fight for LGBT rights. The “Queer Tour” continues to UC Santa Cruz on May 7th. To follow the work of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, go to www.thetaskforce.org.
