Report from Against Equality event 1/3/15
On 1 March 2015, visiting author and academic Ryan Conrad from Montreal gave a talk in front of about 40 people based on his co-edited book “Against Equality – queer revolution not mere inclusion”, which argues that being able to marry, join the army or the police does not provide equality for queer people. Being equal in the current system only perpetuates the dominant hegemony.
Several participants told the organisers that they appreciated the opportunity to discuss these things as there had not been a platform to do so before.
