Update: After Proposition 8 was overturned this photo got a lot of attention. My sentiments exactly!

Language is a powerful force that has undoubtedly shaped the development of humanity. It gives us in effect a certain kind of telepathy: the ability to read the thoughts of others and to project our thoughts into the minds of others. We do this by combining and producing strings of symbols with conventionalised meanings, and as a linguist I am driven to understand the form and structure of this human system. But as a queer person I am interested in how language helps us form and communicate identity, why this power is important and what its limitations are. I am a gay man. If a speaker of English reads this, they will broadly understand what I intend by that string of symbols; that I identify as a man and I am attracted to people who similarly identify.
