Queer 101

Queer 101 is a 2 credit focus group that we offer each year out of the Q Center through the Comparative History of Ideas Department. It is a credit/no credit discussion based class that focuses on queer/LGBTQ issues through an intersectional and liberatory lens. These topics include history, (trans*) gender, sexuality, disability, class, access, race, age, bodies, normativity, religion, etc. This class is for anyone at any level of engagement and familiarity with this material.

This class is facilitated by undergraduate peers working with the Director of the Q Center and an Undergraduate advisor. The class will typically be discussion focused. The schedule for Queer 101 varies every quarter. Please contact the Education Coordinator at qzone@uw.edu for updated information.
