We’re the Radical Homosexual Agenda, a contingent of the NYC queer community who believes that our rights extend way beyond marriage.

Why do we call ourselves the RHA?

“Beware the Radical Homosexual Agenda!” That’s the Right Wing’s rallying cry. It’s meant to conjure a legion of pink-clad, poly-loving, left-of-left queers who are threatening to invade Small Town America. Well, that description sounds sort of nice to us, too, actually. Except for the invasion part—’cause we’re also anti-imperialist. And besides, we’ve been in those small towns and everywhere else all along.

Who is the RHA?

We’re queer folks of diverse ages and backgrounds who are based in the New York City metropolitan area. We’re gender-queers and run-of the mill homosexuals, bisexuals and transexuals.

What is the RHA all about?

If you listen to the Human Rights Campaign or the liberal politicians, you’d think all queers wanted to sign their life away to Uncle Sam or get “married” and have kids. But queer liberation reaches way beyond these issues.

The queer liberation groups of the 60s and 70s had much broader social visions. They were anti-war, they fought for economic rights and agitated for free speech and a greater vision of democracy.

In the downsizing of our dreams that occurred during the last several decades, mainstream LGBTQ groups have forgotten these connections. They’d rather feed queer soldiers to Bush’s war than fight the military-industrial complex. They forget that, even more than marriage, the majority of queers also need affordable housing and health care. And this is convenient for these groups and politicians, since they’re underwritten by corporations whose very existences are threatened by steps towards economic equality and a more egalitarian democracy.
