Ongoing Queer / LGBTQ+ News, Events, and Culture
In this ongoing weekly class students will discuss the current week's queer news and events, as well as fun things happening in entertainment and the world.
In this weekly discussion group we will talk about the current week's queer news. While often there are a lot more things going on than we can conceivably cover, we will try to tackle as many as possible! Each week news will be complied from different subjects. These can include: - Politics, including current bills, protests, lawmakers, and court decisions - Entertainment, including television shows, movies, actors, singers, authors, and entertainers - Current social events, outrages,...
In addition to being a member of, and active in, many aspects of the queer community, including activism and visibility, I also raised and homeschooled a queer child. The critical component of my MFA degree was on the history of queer protagonists in mainstream literature, a paper that was later published, and I have continued to expand on that research for further publication. I have also researched many aspects of current and past queer society, political activity, and culture.
0Handouts will be given each class for reference, but printing them is optional.
When discussing the realities that encompasses queer people's lives, parents should be aware that somewhat challenging topics such as homophobia, racism, repression, depression, and others will inevitably be discussed. These topics will be handled sensitively, focus will remain on the topics, and there will be strong teacher presence and guidance, as well as being able to contact the teacher outside of class with concerns. Together learners will vet information and events, and use that process to learn accurately talk about the issues in the queer world. However, at the same time there are any joyous things about being queer, and existing in a queer world, and we will discuss those joys as well!
