In this seminar, we will study film, literature, and television to see what it tells us about LGBT identities and communities and the power of popular culture. How does gender (along with other aspects of our identity such as race and ethnicity) shape how we experience and move through the world?  How does sexuality influence how we produce and consume art and culture? Each of these seminars will explore issues of gender and sexuality through a difference lens. Also, as a Learning Community, we will engage in a variety of experiences that help us explore these questions further, including experiences that will help us learn more about our campus and Austin communities affected by these issues.  

Signature events: attend events on campus like the Drag Show and Coming Out Day and go off campus to explore the Austin community.
