LGBTQ History & Theory and What a Movement Can Teach Congregations (RS-638)

In this course we will explore an often hidden history that resulted in a significant attitudinal shift in Americans in less than half a century.  Understanding how this happened might offer helpful lessons for faith movements seeking to change attitudes and values.  Different faith communities have responded differently to lesbian, gay, and transgendered people this course will assume an accepting posture, and will approach the attitudinal changes in the United States as a generally positive thing. While you do not need to agree with this value, the class will be of greatest benefit if you are able to appreciate those who have worked hard for LGBTQ equality.  If you have concerns please feel free to contact the instructor – mpiazza@hartsem.edu
