The film Stonewall Uprising begins with an overview of the ways medical, psychiatric, and legal institutions in the US treated homosexuality prior to the 1960s. Because same-sex sex was illegal, police were able to arrest, the courts allowed to punish, and doctors allowed to treat as deviant, men and women who identified as gay and/or participated in same-sex consensual sexual relationships. The film chronicles how patrons at the Stonewall Bar rebeled against this history and against police violence. Drawing on the film, discuss the ways the uprising marked a change in political consciousness of the lgbtq+ population in NYC . How did the speakers in the film think their about rights to self expression after the uprising? What does this say about the importance of “rights talk” as Villamoare discusses in her article?

On February 25, 2021, the US House of Representatives passed the Equality Act. Here is a promotional video from the Human Rights Campaign: https://youtu.be/YBsTPd56mOc (Links to an external site.)
The law, if enacted, would expand existing federal anti-discrimination law to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. As reported by NPR, President Biden heartily supports this legislation: “I urge Congress to swiftly pass this historic legislation,” he wrote. “Every person should be treated with dignity and respect, and this bill represents a critical step toward ensuring that America lives up to our foundational values of equality and freedom for all.”
Drawing on the lecture by Dean Spade and the two chapters written by him (included in the module) and the actual text of the bill https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/5/text (Links to an external site.), discuss how Spade might assess the ability of the Equality Act to protect transgender people of color who are low-income. Provide evidence from his work to support your ideas. Do you agree with Spade? Biden? What might Villamoare (article in module) say in response to Spade? What might the people profiled in the film Stonewall Uprising say about the Equality Act? What does your response say about the power of law to make our society more equitable?
Your essays should be a minimum of 1200 words
Here is Spade lecture video:

This is my consciousness of race and class and gender identity as I notice the fixed relations between these other Black women and myself. They sell and I buy or I don’t. They risk not eating. I risk going broke on my first vacation afternoon.
~June Jordan, “Report from the Bahamas, 1982” In this text, Jordan complicates everyday assumptions about who will naturally have a shared affinity with whom. Though written nearly 40 years ago, her analysis seems as relevant today as ever. you need to reflect on Jordan’s essay, and respond to the following questions:
How do this readings influence your understanding of affinities and disconnections across lines of race, class, gender, and nation?
Have you ever found yourself in a position like Jordan, where solidarity was present were unexpected – or was absent when expected?
If solidarity cannot be presumed on the basis of skin color, gender, or other identity markers, what can solidarity be built upon?
Please cite Jordan and discuss one of the essays in Feminist Freedom Warriors in your response.
