Beginning with Henry Gerber’s Society for Human Rights in 1924, and stretching into recent legislation around same-sex marriage and transgender rights, the fight for equality for LGBTQ+ citizens has been ongoing. This course seeks to give students context for, and understanding of, the social movements that have defined the LGBTQ+ community in the 20th century and 21st centuries. Topics will include the mid-century homophile movement, Stonewall Revolt, the AIDS crisis, Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell; and the cultural expressions of the movement toward LGBTQ+ acceptance in mainstream American culture. Through readings, film, discussions, papers, and projects, students will develop a comprehensive understanding of the struggle for civil rights for LGBTQ+ citizens.
