LGBT History in the United States: 1940-Present|
The emergence of a distinctive sexual minority in the United States following World War II had a tremendous impact on the society and culture of the modern United States. The push for LGBT recognition, rights, and acceptance intersected with larger discourses of race, sexuality, and class. This course will survey the history of sexual and gender minority communities in the United States from the emergence of the homophile movement through the movement for the legalization of same-sex marriage.
