LGBTQ History: Then & Now
with Gary Jacobson, LCSW, Kathleen Miller, MFA, LCSW, & Anna Kramarsky, PhD
Fridays; April 12, 19, 26, May 3, 10, and 17 2024
12:30-2:00pm at ICP

This course will provide an overview of contemporary LGBTQ experience, owning the historical progress that has come to pass, while also exploring the impact of more current events and concerns. For example, while the AIDS epidemic shaped the experience of LGBTQ identified baby boomers, how is Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) impacting Gen Z youth and millennial young adults? Has there been a generational loss of information now that the Zeitgeist is greater acceptance and rights for the LGBTQ community, and if so, how does it and will it impact future generations? And perhaps most pressing, what impact has the Covid-19 Pandemic and its cascading effects had on those who identify as LGBTQ? How have these effects been either mitigated or exacerbated by  other intersecting aspects of identity such as race, class, immigration and dis/ability (to name only a few)? 

These questions and more will be addressed over the course of 6 weeks, through a combination of readings, film and discussion. Together, we will take a look back at the history of LGBTQ affirmative psychotherapy, the racialized history of our current terms ‘gender’ and ‘sexuality,’ and the experiences of various LGBTQ communities in relation to the AIDS epidemic. We will also look at the places where shame, homophobia, transphobia/misogyny, social media/technology and body modification come up in our current, and often remote, consulting rooms.
