Sex and sexuality have been major hot button issues in recent elections and political discourse. From the scapegoating strategies in political advertising, to the representation of the sexual lifestyles of politicians themselves, and from the battle for Gay Civil Rights to the War on Women, sex and sexuality has played an important role in shaping the 2012 presidential election. Join the New Sexualities Research Focus Group for a workshop discussion on the politics of sex in the Obama-Romney contest.
