Panel: Don’t Say Gay: The Role of Education & Economics in LGBTQ+ Rights
A huge barrier to LGBTQ+ rights is acceptance by mainstream society. For many years, the movement's answer to that challenge was to encourage discussion of queer families and individuals in media, schools, advertising, and more – hoping that acknowledgment would lead to validation. Today, despite decades of progress, advocates face backlash as some co-opt what was meant to make the children of LGBTQ+ families feel welcome, and others criticize corporations for "pinkwashing" and not doing enough. Having made it from Stonewall to marriage equality, can we overcome the polarization of America?
