ALS 205 - LGBTQ U. S. Communities of Color 3 s.h.


This course draws on the history of Sexuality, Women’s and Gender, Whiteness, Latino/as and Chicano/as, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, People Indigenous to the Americas, Arab Americans, and African Americans in order to explore lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex people’s (lgbtqi) experiences in the United States from the colonial era to the present. In this course, students examine the ways in which discourses on sexuality and gender are fundamentally and inextricably enmeshed with race, class, ability, ethnicity, national identity, immigration status, and religion. Students also explore lgbtqi identity and community formation, racial, class, and ethnic conflict among lgbtqi people, the use of illegal and extra-legal violence to repress homoeroticism and gender nonconformity, and the ways in which lgbtqi communities of color endured in a context of oppression. Offered irregularly.
