“Rethinking Sexuality, Liberalism, and the Promise of Love”

How do we create a queer politics of security and radical love in times of the war on terror? How do we resist the assimilation of certain queer bodies within the operations of dominant nationalisms, while, fighting for the rights of bodies marked as dangerous terrorists? Building on queer activist engagements with the security state across US, India, Bangladesh, and Sri-Lanka this presentation will offer critiques of queer liberalisms and proffer newer ways of imagining the intrepidity of pleasure.
