ONLINE: The LGBTQIA+ Rights Movement in America – SLCC Class
Sep 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Continuing Ed at St. Louis Community College is offering a class: “THE LGBTQIA+ RIGHTS MOVEMENT IN AMERICA”

Instructor: Katie Young

 

Wednesday, Sept. 16 from 06:30 to 08:30 PM (online)

 

The year 2019 marked the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, the LGBTQIA+ community’s equivalent to the storming of the Bastille. In both cases, the landmark event was not simply a spontaneous eruption of action to advance a cause, but the result of a myriad of complex factors that were rooted in decades of collective grievances. This course examines the history of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, plus- movement to attain legal and social equality in America, from the earliest efforts to organize through the Supreme Court’s landmark 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges decision, making marriage equality the law of the land. Questions, anecdotes and memories are encouraged in this important discussion. Cost for adults 60 and over is $19. Class meets online using Zoom. Registration closes three business days prior to class start date.

 

To sign up for this class, go to www.stlcc.edu/CE.
