Activist, journalist and philosopher Guy Hocquenghem was one of the most prominent figure of the French gay liberation movement. Antoine Idier will explore his legacy, and that of the student revolution of May 1968. Radical homosexual movements did more than questioning sexual norms, they shattered the traditional meaning of politics.
