These pages are devoted to the sharing of perspectives, the floating of ideas, and the proposal of viewpoints. A virtual think tank, this is where concepts are exercised and world views developed using a critical queer liberationist lens to question, resist and challenge the status quo.
Disclaimer: The viewpoints shared on this page are not necessarily those of Queer Ontario, but featured here to provoke thought, discussion and further questioning to assist Queer Ontario in its ongoing work in social and political analysis.
There are two major components to these pages:
1. The Queer Ontario Think Tank
The Queer Ontario Think Tank is an online publication space dedicated to the promotion of works that articulate the needs and experiences of LGBTQ* people, and/or challenge the laws, the institutional practices, and the social norms that regulate us.
The works found on this website do not necessarily reflect those of Queer Ontario, but are nevertheless featured for their ability to further Queer Ontario’s critical, educational, and liberationist mandate. They reflect Queer Ontario’s anti-oppressive, sex-positive, and liberationist principles.
2. The Queer Liberation Theory Project
In response to growing discontent and dissatisfaction within queer communities in the face of a neo-liberal agenda that has infiltrated LGBT communities over the last two decades, this research project will resurrect the principles of the historical gay liberation movement, re-contextualize them within a contemporary discourse, iterate the findings in theoretical terms and disseminate them via multimedia approaches to further the aims of modern queer liberation movements, including community development and public education.
