Laurel Book Store welcomes writer Emily Hobson to share from her new book Lavender and Red: Liberation and Solidarity in the Gay and Lesbian Left. LGBT activism is often imagined as a self-contained struggle, inspired by but set apart from other social movements. Lavender and Red recounts a far different story: a history of queer radicals who understood their sexual liberation as intertwined with solidarity against imperialism, war, and racism.ringing together archival research, oral histories, and vibrant images, Emily K. Hobson rediscovers the radical queer past for a generation of activists today.
