The Influence of Culture

This speech by author and political commentator Andrew Sullivan discusses the rights and government treatment of gays and lesbians, a topic about which Sullivan is highly influential and passionate.

Sullivan argues that the notion of using politics to gain equality for the LGBT community is delusional. As he explains, it is the personal testimonies of life experiences that will become the driving force for equality. In moving away from victimhood and revolutionizing gay politics, there can be a shift in self-consciousness. The goal is to recognize the need to love and be loved. In changing society and culture, Sullivan believes that a positive shift—one that recognizes the rights of the LGBT community—will lead to a change in politics.
