Despite the legal advances made in recent years, LGBTQ people continue to be marginalized within U.S. society. According to various social indicators, LGBTQ people are disproportionately stigmatized and discriminated against due to their cultural identity and cultural sensibilities. Even in 2019, it seems that mainstream (and even intra-communal) study of queer culture has been fairly one-dimensional or superficial. This begs the question: What exactly does it mean to be LGBTQ, and how can we create a deeper understanding of our experiences?
In order to better illuminate the cultural experience of LGBTQ people, this podcast will examine the topic: What Does It Mean to Be LGBTQ from a cultural perspective? We will focus on current research and hear opinions on who our community is 50 years after Stonewall. The conversation will be genuine, warm, and lively, and will give community members and allies additional insight into who the LGBTQ community is and what the community has contributed to society.
Presenter: Dr. Joel A. Brown
