Printer-friendly version

August 11, 2016


Following the tragic Orlando shooting, I appeared on various radio shows and blogs to provide a deeper context to what happened.  


June 13: I appeared on KPFA Berkeley, on the UpFront program hosted by Brian Edwards-Tiekert.


June 13: I appeared on the Real News Network, and talked about how Omar Mateen was (initially) framed as a “Radical Islamist” rather than as a homophobe (and the problems with such framings overall).


June 14: I fulfilled a long-held dream of mine, of appearing with Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore. We were together on the KPFA “Flashpoints” show with Dennis Bernstein (no relation to Mattilda), and talked extensively about the larger context of radical queer politics surrounding the Orlando shooting.


June 15: I appeared on The Wednesday Show, hosted by Mimi Rosenberg, on WBAI 99.5 FM, NYC, which starts at 6:00 a.m.  To listen to the segment, go to the archives, go to June 15, and look for the 6:00 a.m show. My segment starts at the 1:46:20 mark.


June 18: I appeared on the Chicago-based podcast “This Is Hell!” to talk about my chapter on Hillary Clinton, “Marry the State, Jail the People: Hillary Clinton and the Rise of Carceral Feminism,” which appears in Liza Featherstone’s edited anthology, False Choices: The Faux Feminism of Hillary Rodham Clinton. My thanks to Nathan Cedric Tankus for helping get this out there.


June 22: I appeared again on The Wednesday Show, hosted by Mimi Rosenberg, on WBAI 99.5 FM, NYC, which starts at 6:a.m.  This time I was with my friend and comrade Karma Chávez, and we talked about the connections between Orlando and immigration patterns and the US war machine. To listen, go to the archives here, go to June 22, and look for the 6 a.m show. My segment starts at the 1:11:22 mark.


June 23: Sam Smith and Ben Mabie wrote a blog based on the KPFA Flashpoints interviews, “The State of Bigoted Violence: Radical Perspectives on Orlando.”
