HNR Seminar (210, 220, 230)

Course Time(s):
W 3:45 - 5:05 pm


Course Description:

This seminar examines the roots and growth of the gay and lesbian rights movement from a state of fearful invisibility to its present status as a provocative force upsetting assumptions about the nature of society’s mythic values. Material will explore how this very personal yet political and cultural struggle challenges society to embrace the inherent diversity of its minority citizens. Sessions will include recorded and in-person accounts from gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people who have survived the challenges of manifest prejudice to create lifestyles, relationships, and families on their own terms.
