This semester course is a survey of short stories, plays, poetry, music, fiction, and non-fiction celebrating LGBTQ+ voices. We will focus on American literature from the Stonewall Riots to today and will examine some of the major concepts and issues that shape gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer experience through literature, art, and film. The course is designed with all students in mind, functioning under the idea that literature can be both a window to the experiences of others as well as a mirror of our own experience. Students should expect frequent class discussion, opportunities for many different types of writing, as well as a wide variety of reading.

Possible texts: Aristotle & Dante, The Laramie Project, Orlando, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and many more poems, songs, and excerpts from longer pieces.

*This course is eligible as a replacement for any one (1) semester of an English IV standard course for students who have thus far met all graduation requirements
