CLAGS is proud to support the PILLOWTALK: Long Table Conversation Series on 1/13, 1/18, and 1/25. CLAGS members and supporters get 15% off with the code LOVEISRADICAL on those shows AND on 1/12, 1/20, and 1/27 matinee shows.
Set in Brooklyn 2017, PILLOWTALK brings to life one night in the lives of Sam and Buck, a recently married interracial couple. Through a formal exploration of theatrical naturalism and the codified gender norms of ballet’s pas de deux, PILLOWTALK queers the intersections of race, gender, and class to challenge our assumptions of love and marriage.
Conceived by Lois Weaver, a long table is a special form of discussion open to the audience in which viewers rotate between moving up to the table when they wish to join the conversation and returning to their seat when they wish to listen.
LONG TABLE SERIES:
MARRIAGE EQUALITY ACROSS GENERATIONS SATURDAY, JANUARY 13TH, 4.15PM From Loving vs Virginia to United States vs Windsor, from the AIDS Crisis to PrEP, from the Stonewall Riots to #BlackLivesMatter—where do we go from here? This interracial and intergenerational conversation will explore the personal impact of marriage equality in the LGBQT community.
QUEER AND TRANSMAGIC IN THE WORKPLACE THURSDAY, JANUARY 18TH, 9.15PM Trans scholars, artists and activists address the economic vulnerabilities of queer and trans people of color. Do diversity and inclusion agendas make us any safer in the workplace?
LOVE’S POWER/MICROINVISIBILITY THURSDAY, JAN. 25TH, 9.15PM What is love’s labor? What are the spiritual and material dimensions of QPOC love? How do marriage and love differ?

As you know, CLAGS relies on your ideas, energy, and financial support for our programs, conferences, fellowships, newsletters, and community activities.With your help, we have been able to keep our doors open and are working to build our capacities and resources. However, in the midst of an increasingly hostile political environment and strained financial resources, we need your help now more than ever. We hope you will consider renewing or even increasing your generous gift this year.
The kind of work that CLAGS does creates important connections between academics, activists, students, artists, policy makers, and community members - and we do it on a meager budget. Less than 10% of CLAGS's support comes from CUNY.
Your support makes it possible for us to have an LGBTQ voice at a major public institution, and to have such a powerful impact on students, academics, and the broader public. In the words of Sara Ahmed, our Kessler scholar: "Sometimes we have to work hard to know what is possible." We will continue working hard in 2018 and can't wait to see you at our Spring events!
