Eric A. Stanley works at the intersections of radical trans/queer politics, theories of state
violence, and visual culture. Eric is currently finishing a PhD in the
History of Consciousness department at the University of California,
Santa Cruz and continues to organize with Critical Resistance and Gay
Shame. Along with Chris Vargas, Eric co-directed the films Homotopia
(2006) and Criminal Queers (2012).
Yasmin Nair is a Chicago-based writer,activist, academic, and commentator. Which mostly means that she struggles to pay rent while living the glamorous life of a freelance
writer. Her writing and organising address neoliberalism, inequality,
and the politics of rescue and affect; the immigration crisis; queer
politics and theory, and the contours of a ridiculous gay movement that
pretends that the right to marry, the right to kill, and hate crimes
legislation actually constitute some kind of radical agenda.
