This course is especially designed to allow a safe space for students to explore the LGBTQIA+ community and to question, wonder, and discuss ideas together without fear. In this course, students will explore the history of the LGBTQIA+ movement from Ancient Greece and Asia through the 21st Century. During this exploration, we will discuss the following topics and more: what it means to “come out,” the meanings, flags, and relevant terminology associated with each letter of the LGBTQIA+ acronym, famous (and not-so-famous) gay people throughout history, discrimination toward LGBTQ+ individuals, Stonewall, the Pride Parade, and activism leading to important advancements in law.
