In this lecture and roundtable discussion, Timothy Stewart-Winter and panelists will discuss his book Queer Clout: Chicago and the Rise of Gay Politics (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2016), which argues that big-city municipal politics was central to the gay movement’s path since the 1950s from the closets to the corridors of power, while shifting the story from the coastal from the coastal meccas to the nation's great inland metropolis. Themes will include the role of policing in LGBTQ mobilization, the gay movement's debt to urban black politics, the politics of region and spatial scale, and the present and future of urban queer activism.
