Faculty member Amanda Kerrigan who supports our Gay/Straight Alliance will lead this class in Queer culture. She will create an additional parent child contract to fill out after enrollment.
We will read several fiction and non-fiction books and do activities and have guest speakers based off the content. "Queer There and Everywhere: 23 People Who Changed the World" by Sarah Prager "Queer: The Ultimate LGBT Guide for Teens" by Kathy Belge and Make Biescheke 3 YA novels about queer protagonists.
Students are encouraged to buy copies of their own books if they would like to doodle or take notes as they read. But local libraries are also a possibility! Please reach out to Joye Levy if you need support in purchasing or borrowing these materials. Please do not let cost be a factor! Scholarships for the class also available.
