This panel is centered around themes raised in Professor Libby Adler’s thought-provoking recent book, Gay Priori (Duke University Press 2018), bringing together academics and practitioners to engage in a conversation about future directions of LGBTQ law reform. In her book, Adler explores the tension between focusing advocacy on a limited set of legal issues, affecting core constituencies of the movement, and broadening the scope of legal reform while encompassing marginalized communities. She offers a critique of mainstream LGBTQ legal agendas and suggests a redistributive approach to expand the law reform agenda. The panel will engage with Adler’s critique and suggestions and explore avenues of legal reform. Moderated by Claudia Haupt.
