About the event

"Could I be Queer? Uncovering Sexual Orientation" is a thought-provoking course designed to help students explore and understand the complexities of sexual orientation and identity. Beginning with foundational concepts, the class delves into the definitions and distinctions between sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Through a combination of lectures, readings, and discussions, students will examine the diverse spectrum of sexual orientations, including but not limited to heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, and asexual identities. This foundational knowledge provides students with the vocabulary and framework needed to navigate the nuances of sexual orientation.

The course places a strong emphasis on the personal and social aspects of sexual orientation, encouraging students to reflect on their own experiences and societal influences. Through personal narratives, case studies, and interactive activities, students will explore how cultural, familial, and peer dynamics shape one’s understanding and expression of their sexual orientation. The class also addresses the role of intersectionality, considering how factors such as race, ethnicity, religion, and socioeconomic status intersect with sexual orientation to create unique experiences for individuals within the LGBTQ+ community.

In addition to personal exploration, "Could I be Queer? Uncovering Sexual Orientation" examines the broader social and political contexts that impact the lives of queer individuals. Students will study the historical and contemporary challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community, including discrimination, legal battles, and the fight for equal rights. The course also highlights the resilience and activism of queer individuals and communities, showcasing how advocacy and allyship have driven social change. By the end of the course, students will have a deeper understanding of their own sexual orientation and a greater appreciation for the diverse experiences and struggles of the LGBTQ+ community.
