This essay is a reflection on the Queer Nation manifesto’s history and its relevance for the present day. A great deal has changed for the better during the past twenty-five years, and Sweden has become a much better country to live in for LGBTQ people. But that should not a reason for complaisance. The manifesto is still an energetic text, but what is needed today is the political understanding of sexualities in a broader intersectional perspective. It has been said that an accident rarely occurs in isolation. That maxim can remind us of how various axes of inequality are often intertwined. What is required of us at all times is a vivid ideological and political debate that may offer alternatives to the nationalism, fascism, and populism currently sweeping Europe.
