Voices of Queer people, especially of those who come from multiple oppressed identities have often been silenced due to systemic homophobia, transphobia and racism. Despite this the LGBTQIAP+ has shown an amazing resiliency that is present in the rich canon of LGBTQIAP+ literature. Readings will cover both historical and contemporary writing by, about and for Queer people. We will read a variety of texts including poetry, essays, short stories and a novel. Content will be tailored to the grade level. The discussion of the literature will be contextualized with reading about, discussing and researching Queer history in the US.
