Urbanization has been a major catalyst in the development of new sexual identities and communities. This course examines this phenomenon and the ways in which the city has been an important place in queer history and politics. Specific issues we will look at include: urban politics, urban migration, segregation, redevelopment and gentrification, homelessness, public housing, access to public space, and policing and criminalization. The course will pay specific attention to queer communities in the San Francisco Bay Area.
