One thought on “Queer Kids for Full Communism: Living the Dream with the Queer Liberation Front

  1. I haven’t quite finished listening but really enjoyed the discussion, especially the parts about hegemony – but def over all very thought provoking. At risk of merely wheeling out a hobby horse, though, I was struck by the youth-specificity of the QLF, which seemed like it may reflect the general youth-worshipping tendencies of gay and queer scenes. I would love to hear more about why the QLF decided on a specifically youth focus and how they see that reinforcing and/or resisting forms of ageism and generationalism in the queer scene?
