By the early 1990s, the losses of AIDS and the end of the Cold War displaced the gay and lesbian left and brought military inclusion to the forefront of an increasingly neoliberal LGBT rights movement. Though queer radicals continued to organize and the field of queer studies grew, neither fully recognized the contributions of the gay and lesbian left. However, new continuities have become apparent in recent queer radicalism and scholarship, especially those modes that foreground queer of color critique and trans critique. The gay and lesbian left's transformative and transnational commitments are echoed today through queer work against prisons, involvement in Palestinian solidarity, queer immigrant organizing, and especially in the Black Lives Matter movement.

Keywords:   military inclusion, LGBT rights, neoliberal, gay and lesbian left, queer, queer studies, queer of color critique, Black Lives Matter
