TEN YEARS AGO ELI CLARE SHARED HIS OBSERVATIONS OF THE STONEWALL
25
event in New York City. The event was hailed as a defining
moment for queer identities and politics of the I990S, and to Eli
it revealed disturbing trends of consumerism, inaccessibility, and
a narrowed agenda in lesbian and gay politics. Eli laid out a vision
of what we might work to see unfold by the 50th-anniversary
of Stonewall. His vision centered on economic justice, wealth
redistribution, universal access to healthcare and education, and
a new leadership paradigm for queer and trans rights struggles that
would center groups marginalized by multiple vectors of oppression.
