Join us at the Philly Liberation Center as we resume our Liberation Library series with a discussion of Leslie Feinberg’s classic 1993 novel Stone Butch Blues. Hir first novel, Stone Butch Blues is widely considered in and outside the U.S. to be a groundbreaking work about the complexities of gender. Feinberg was a member of Workers World Party, a revolutionary communist, and the first theorist to advance a Marxist concept of transgender liberation.
In hir own words: “With this novel I planted a flag: Here I am—does anyone else want to discuss these important issues? I wrote it, not as an expression of individual ‘high’ art, but as a working-class organizer mimeographs a leaflet—a call to action.” Corporations have put away their pride merch, but we know that the struggle for queer liberation goes beyond one month!
