BBH 251: Straight Talks I: Advanced Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Peer Education

This course will afford students opportunities to develop presentation skills and critical consciousness about power, privilege, and social change. The class focuses on experiences related to communities embodying diverse genders and sexualities, strives to expand exploration related to identity, and helps students recognize the experiences of those from historically marginalized communities.

Through instruction, readings, discussions, interactive activities, participation, self-reflection, and guided teaching experiences, students will have opportunities to achieve the course objectives. As a result, students will be able to translate theory to practice and deliver a project-based learning experience serving the local community.
