Pride and Prejudice: LGBTQ Histories, Rights and Contemporary Issues in London

This multidisciplinary course will examine the evolution LGBTQ rights in Britain, from the influence of colonial Britain’s anti-homosexuality laws, to modern-day inclusion and protections for the queer community; students will have the opportunity to gain an insight into the histories and background of these changes, as well as consider the complex issues of intersectional and identity politics. Exploring the key actors in effecting change, legal issues, social and economic factors, changing perceptions of gender and current events in relation to key theoretical and historical events will act as a basis for critical interrogation and understanding.
