In honor of the 100th anniversary of Harry Hay's birth, CLAGS and the Harry Hay Centennial Committee will sponsor a weekend conference exploring Hay's life and ideas and the multiple facets of LGBT life that Harry Hay himself pioneered. These aspects will be organized around four major themes: the arts, political activism, spirituality and sexual identities. The conference will feature presentations from scholars, activists and artists all exploring the evolution of LGBT life in the 60+ years since Hay and a small cohort of Californians founded the Mattachine Society.

This presentation explores the ideas and activism of late nineteenth, early twentieth century Gay rights pioneer, poet, anarchist and socialist Edward Carpenter. It looks at his ideas about the social and culturall roles of Gay men in the larger society as part of a continuum of Gay self-conceptualization that  began with Walt Whitman and continues down to today through Harry Hay and others.   

This will be held in room 203.
