Film Screening of Gen Silent
Gen Silent startlingly discovers how oppression in the years before Stonewall now affects older lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people with fear and isolation. Many who won the first civil rights victories for generations to come are now dying prematurely because they are reluctant to ask for help and have too few friends or family to care for them. Gen Silent shows the disparity in the quality of paid caregiving from mainstream care facilities committed to making their LGBT residents safe and happy, to places where LGBT elders face discrimination by staff and bullying by other seniors.

 WGST presents Robert Jensen, University of Texas professor, discussing his latest book, The end of patriarchy: Radical feminism for men.  In this book, Jensen asks one key question: What do we need to create and maintain stable, decent human communities that can remain in a sustainable relationship with the larger living world?  His answer: A radical feminism that critiques institutionalized male dominance, rejects men's assertion of a right to control womne's sexuality and reproduction, and demands an end to men's violence.  

Jensen, who teaches in the School of Journalism at UT, Austin, is the author of several other books, including The heart of whiteness: Confronting race, racism, and white privilege and Getting off: Pornography and the end of masculinity.  

 This talk is free and open to the public.  Jensen will be selling and signing books after the talk.
