Course Description

ONLINE: Are you struggling to keep up with evolving terminology around LGBTQ+ identities or curious to learn more about current research and understanding? In this course, participants will be introduced to the broad spectrum of gender and sexual identities.

The course will blend fact-based research with real-life stories from the LGBTQ+ community to create an engaging and trustworthy approach to learning about topics that few people have had the opportunity to understand. The format will be roughly two-thirds lecture, with 20 to 30 minutes allocated for engagement activities and discussion in each class. Required content (up to 45 minutes per week in articles, videos and podcasts) will be available online. | Lecture + Q&A.
