This is a survey course of the origins, development, and current status of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer reform and liberation movements, cultures, and communities in the United States during the last two centuries, with particular emphasis on the last 65 years. The course concerns the communities, organizations, and resistance movements created by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and queer peoples from diverse racial, ethnic, and class backgrounds. The course also covers the impact that the homophobia and heterosexism of the dominant culture has on LGBTQ people and communities, including our physical and mental health; access to social services, housing and employment; and equal rights and protections.
Seniors can also take the
course for free through the Learning for a Lifetime (LFL) program,
which was designed to promote the increasing desire for knowledge among
experienced citizens of the First Coast community. The LFL program allows
Florida residents aged 60 and older, to audit college-level courses with
tuition waived. If you have questions, please contact Admissions at (904)
