LGBTQ, or LGBT Who? Race, Sexuality, and Community in 20th-century U.S. History (FYS)

Spring 2025
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Queer Studies

Beginning with the early-20th-century construction of the "homosexual" as a distinct identity, this course will explore the evolving, complex, and contested history of the queer community over the past century. The course will especially explore how race and gender frequently shaped marginalized yet resilient social movements for the lives, dignity, and rights of trans and other queer people of color, from the drag balls of a century ago through the Black Lives Matter movement.
