Laura Flanders did an excellent video interview for The Nation with Queers for Economic Justice co-director Amber Hollibaugh about the changing face of LGBT priorities. If you're interested in the assimilation of LGBT people, movement priorities, or economic justice, you won't want to miss this one.

My favorite quote? "I'm not sorry we can now enter the military, and I'm not sorry that we can now marry. But frankly I come from a moment in time, and a radical vision in time, that never made marriage or the military my criteria of success. Are those victories? They are. Were they my idea of what we were trying to build as a liberation movement for queer people? No."

Mine either, Amber. Mine either.
