This course explores cinematic representations of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer identities in Europe, Africa, and North America, as well as their associated sociocultural, legal, and political debates. By examining a variety of nations and time periods—from France in the 1930s to the United States in the 1960s to Senegal, The Gambia, and Nigeria in the 21st century—this course outlines the industrial trends and censorial mandates that have refracted sexual orientation identity through the moving image. This course counts toward the Human Thought and Expression area of inquiry requirement.
