This seminar course explores the LGBT culture, movement, and LGBT persons’
lives. “LGBT” is an umbrella term for different groups including non-heterosexuals, gender
nonconformists, intersex persons, and transsexuals.
Through course readings and
discussions, the course will cover the origins of, and issues, that affect LGBT communities
at both the macro and micro levels.
The course will also address the expectations for and
reactions to LGBT persons and communities, and whether these are based on valid
information. Finally, the course will address that role that others, such as allies and families,
play in mitigating the effects of living in a society hostile to LGBT persons.
