Reclaim Pride Umeå

LGBTQ politics & neoliberalism

The dominating LGBTQ politics since the 1990s have gone hand in hand with the demise and privatizations of neoliberalism. What is the worth of our rights when class division and racism rises? Erik Gunnarsson was one of the editors of the magazine Brand’s special issue on queer politics from 2020, Queerfaran (The Queer Fear).

At Återta Umeå Pride, he will talk about is writing in this issue, as well as the connection between LGBTQ politics and neoliberalism. Erik has studied the history of ideas and has a podcast called Homolobbyn. He works as a museum educator in his day job.
