In conjunction with our current exhibition, The Sexuality Spectrum, Timothy Rodgers, Director of the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum will will discuss the benefits that the queer movement has had for people who are not gay. The discussion will examine how “straight” folks recognize how the movement is equally about liberating them.
