Introduction to LGBTQ Studies Discrimination to Liberation
This course explores the paradigm of sexuality in the United States. Students will intently engage in sociopolitical systems in which homophobia, transphobia and personal biases are created and maintained. Students will practice ally-behavior to consider the practitioner's role in advocacy. At the end of this course, students will be able to identify the ways in which heterosexism creates disparities between heterosexual and LGBTQ peoples and recognize the impact of empowerment, as a form of agency, on LGBTQ people's lives.
